8 Obscure Phobias That Actually Exist

You won't know about them until you read about them.

  1. 1

    Alektrophobia – The Fear of Chickens

    The "fowl" beasts know no fear! Don't let them into your house, unless it is inside a bucket and marinaded with paprika.

  2. 2

    Blennophobia – The Fear of Slime

    This is sort of understandable. We wouldn't touch slime of any color or consistency.

  3. 3

    Chaetophobia – The Fear of Hair

    On the flip side, not a lot of money is wasted on hairdressers.

  4. 4

    Dendrophobia – The Fear of Trees

    You've seen Lord of the Rings. They can throw boulders and stomp you down with their large feet-root thingies.

  5. 5

    Equinophobia – The Fear of Horses

    They seem to be plotting something here...

  6. 6

    Francophobia – The Fear of France or French Culture

    Legend speaks of a historical culture who cook delicious Beef bourguignon, include paintings of Claude Monet and the world's largest museum. *shivers* So scary...

  7. 7

    Gerontophobia – The Fear of Old People

    Don't be fooled by their charming smiles and their perfect cookies; behind the good mannerisms lie the minds of... well... old people.

  8. 8

    Herpetophobia – The Fear of Reptiles

    Forget having a fear; we wouldn't want to within 500 meters of a python.
