My totally irrational fear is Orcas. Irrational because as far as I know there's been one attack of orcas against a human in the wild and it was a case of mistaken identity (They thought he was a seal).
Also because I live in Ontario and it's not like I'm going to ever encounter an orca in my day to day life.

Not a fear, but I hate chipmunks. Fuck those little bastards.

Spiders. Enough to make my "flight or fight" instinct to takeover, squishing the poor thing. I say poor because I want to do the whole put in a glass & take it outside, but I'm afraid it will escape and bite me.

Wasps and hornets if I'm in a confined space with them. I'm less bothered I'm open spaces unless they are buzzing around me.

Silverfish and house caterpillars both freak me out. Other creepy crawlies, like our large flying roaches and our spiders, I am disgusted by but not especially fearful of. My fear for venomous creatures feels entirely justified, so I won't list those.

Tarantulas. Saw Arachnophobia on TV when I was 4 or 5. Then dad thought it was hiiiiilarious to chase me around the house with a huge rubber tarantula. Mom made him throw it away. My mom is Jeff Daniels.

Spiders, also from seeing a scene from a movie on TV when I was really young. Except in my case the movie was "Tarantula." Because I am old. I can still see that giant bristly leg crashing in through the ceiling. Hairy spiders cause me to make that visceral animal sound of fear. I'm okay with daddy long-legs, though. I know they're technically not spiders. Shut up.

Centipedes. Because, TOO MANY LEGS

And that thing that went into Chekhov's ear in Wrath of Khan.

Spiders and any other creepy crawlers. Along with anything that looks a bit like a creepy crawler out of the corner of my eye, like chipped paint on the wall/ceiling or leaves on the ground.

Also chimpanzees, because they'll eat your fucking face off and that's terrifying.

Even though I realize it's pretty irrational, I'm a bit afraid of sharks. It's only because they're hidden until they're basically touching you, and I don't love things I can't see. After I had a false alarm once, I'm also afraid of bed bugs.

I am about 90% better with stinging hymenopterans (bees, wasps), which used to be my #1 fear as a kid, but hornets still freak me out.

Fucking WASPS and BEES. I wasn't afraid of bees until I got stung on the eyelid last year. Little kamikaze jerks!

Also maybe cows, if I'm near them. Which is not often.
