To begin with, the appearances of snakes are the first source of my fear. It all began when I was in elementary school and I was in the Boys Scout club. Every summer, we usually went camping in the forest and my friends and I were scared to sleep out at night because, we always heard something move around us.

In the morning we saw snakes on the tent, they were very long, slimy, and very ugly. As we were trying to escape, they found a way to enter the tent and we all ran out.
