Not a fear as such but I can't touch cottonwool balls. Even just typing that makes all the hair on my arms stand up and I feel ick!
I remembered another one - whales and submarines. I will never go in the ocean because of these (never mind the sharks, jellyfish, crocodiles, drowning - you know, things that might actually kill you).
I loved the documentary Blackfish (about orcas in captivity) but that was about the most creepy and horrifying movie ever.
Unflushed or skid-marked toilets. I can't use a public toilet if there's anything in the bowl, even paper. And at home I lose my cool and demand that the perpetrator come and flush it so I can use it.
Putting my head under water. Even sometimes in the shower. I think it's more having my eyes shut under water/not being able to see under water - I'm totally fine swimming with goggles in clear water.
Mice, rats anything that is small and scurries!
Moths mostly. Also emus and any bird that looks at me too long. I just don't trust them!
