Everyone has a different view of something. To some people, what might be a nightmare or fear could be someone else's sweet, new pet. Take for example, my new pet tarantula! She's a Chilean Gold Fluff, but most people seem to just want to call her "creepy."
I've had various people tell me they'd be afraid to even hold her, while I just let her sit on my head and ride around. What's creepy to some is cuddly to me, and perhaps you're just the same!
