Which animals make you jumpy and nervous?
There are not many animals that can make me nervous. Growing up in the country has helped me to love all of God's creation, even snakes (which I think are cute). I suppose the one animal that has made me feel nervous would have to be the stingray. Last summer we had a year's pass to our local zoo called John Ball Zoo. The zoo had an exhibit that was hands on, you could feed the stingrays. It definitely had me a bit scared, mostly because they look so weird. After I finally got over my fear I realized that they were just like puppies, curious and soft. Their mouths were so soft and they very gently took a chunk of fish from my hands. I don't even think I was able to snap a photo because I was so nervous. I'm hoping to take the whole fam to go to the zoo again this summer to see those stingrays again, who knows, we might become good friends.
