Zemmiphobia: The Fear of the Great Mole Rat

Zemmiphobia is the abnormal and persistent fear of the great mole rat.  Some mole rats are blind, hairless and all of them are absolutely hideous looking.  It is plain to see why anyone who encounters the mole rat may develop Zemmiphobia.
A phobia is a strong, persistent fear of situations, objects, activities or persons.  The main symptom is an excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject. Other phobia symptoms include shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, sweating, nausea, and an overall feeling of dread.  Phobias are the most common form of anxiety disorders.
