Herpetophobia

Kammie S “Mamma Squirrel” of  Nut House Central  runs this ODD BALL PHOTO challenge,where she encourages us to post any photo which we hesitate to delete.

Herpetophobia is fear or aversion to lizards and snakes.Seeing the creature can cause disgust,aversion,anxiety, panic attack or nausea.

To be frank, there is no need for all these.

Most lizard species are harmless to humans

House Lizards Are a lot misunderstood creatures.They are harmless,they help us by eating those dangerous pests which cause immense damage to humans health.

Certain Lizards in California are said to prevent Lyme disease ,since the reptiles act as a host to these bugs and proteins in the lizard blood is said to kill the Lyme causing bacteria in the Ticks.
