Rats would be up there for me too. I'd add snakes and spiders to that list, although I've (almost) outgrown those fears as an adult. Almost.

Earthworms would top my list. But who wouldn't be scared of that freaking cockroach.

I used to fear lizards and rats when I was a child. But, rats still make me uncomfortable :roll:

When I was five, my house had this giant, black IKEA clock. It was located at the top of the stairs and for some reason, I had been very afraid of it. Every time I reached the top of the stairs, I would run past that clock as fast as possible. I don't know where that clock is now. Also, I had been (and still am) deathly afraid of cockroaches. I broke my aunt's keyboard once while trying to run away from one.

My biggest fear was and always will be, spiders. I can't be anywhere near one no matter what size it is. I can't even look at or touch a picture of one.

As a child, one of my greatest fears was clowns. They terrified me and still do to this day.
Their painted faces haunt my dreams, their eyes able to pierce a hole through my soul.

Going over bridges. Always have a feeling we'll wreck and fall in the water and die.

Ah! Acrophobia is my problem to date. I can't withstand lofty places or climb trees. It terrifies me most, right from childhood.

As a child, feathered animals give me the creep especially the sight of a lifeless one. And I still do even now that I'm a grownup.

Grass cutters. Imagine some stalks of grass hit your eye. Or even worse, having the blade detached and fly around when you're in proximity.

As a child I was and still am terrified of heights. I've never gotten past that. I've never been on a plane and I basically refuse to climb a ladder too high up. LOL! It's just the fear of not being in control and having no way of saving myself from getting hurt.
