Fear or anxiety. A perceived mental, emotional or physical threat. Fear of attack, judgment, criticism, or "stinging words." Someone or something in your life you feel has the intent to scare, intimidate, or harass you. Dreaming of this creature can represent:
- Having too much of one of these qualities, or that you could benefit by being less this way
- Not having enough of one of these qualities, or that you could benefit by being more like this
- Someone or something in your real life with whom you associate one of these qualities (an event, situation, threat, etc.)
