Zoophobia may have one of two closely related meanings: a generic term for specific phobias to particular animals, or an irrational fear or even simply dislike of any non-human animals.

Examples of specific zoophobias would be entomophobias, such as fear spiders (arachnophobia) or a fear of bees (apiphobia). See the article at -phobia for the list of various phobias.

Zoophobia should not be confused with normal fear of dangerous or threatening animals, such as the fear of wild bears or venomous snakes.

Many of these phobias are not necessarily related to immediate traumatic experience.
