A & D.  I usually know what to do for B, C, & E, but I may not see A or D stop by.

Reasonably cautious of all critters, however many legs they may possess.  Especially when in the water near my usual stomping ground, especially watchful for 0 legged critters - sharks, killer whales

B and C

C. Down in the desert Southwest the dreaded & legendary Chupacabra is the backpacker’s worst nightmare 😉

In order, B, E, and A 

Human beings can be sheisty, centipedes and millipedes freak me out so much more than spiders or other insects *shudder* and snakes always tend to want to nap in places I can't see them until we're too close for their comfort, and mine.
