Spiders, first, snakes, second, and rats, third, are considered the biggest turnoffs, according to a poll of 512 single people in Britain conducted by yugov.co.uk for craigslist. Forty-seven percent of the respondents said they would be less inclined to date someone who owned a spider, 41 percent were put off by snakes and 40 percent would shy away from dating someone who owned a rat.
Women, in particular, were turned off by men who own spiders with 54 percent saying they would be less inclined to date a man who owned one. Forty-one percent of men said they would be less inclined to date a woman who owned a snake. 
According to the poll, the less-inclined-to-date list includes: ferret, 31 percent; lizard, 29 percent; mouse, 25 percent; dog, 23 percent; cat, 21 percent; parrot, 16 percent; hamster or guinea pig, 11 percent.
