8 Obscure Phobias That Actually Exist
You won't know about them until you read about them.
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.
Blennophobia – The Fear of Slime
This is sort of understandable. We wouldn't touch slime of any color or consistency.
Chaetophobia – The Fear of Hair
On the flip side, not a lot of money is wasted on hairdressers.
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.
Equinophobia – The Fear of Horses
They seem to be plotting something here...
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...
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.
Herpetophobia – The Fear of Reptiles
Forget having a fear; we wouldn't want to within 500 meters of a python.
