These People's Phobias Will Surprise You

Video by: Emily Verdouw

Sharks. Crocs. Spiders.

We get it -- we live in a rugged, rustic country filled with predatory species -- just ask us about it!

Snakes linger in the bushes -- huntsmans’ hide in electrical boxes and sharks -- well that’s an obvious one (even if Mick Fanning’s fist has us think otherwise).

Which is why for most of us, the thought of any one of the aforementioned beings brings a chill to the spine. After all, what could possibly be worse than jumping into bed with a big, fat hairy spider?

According to some -- a lot of things. Buttons, for one is a legitimate phobia if you weren’t aware.

Thanks for coming.
