      Wow... some of these are really incredible!

      I noticed that most of you seem to dream about mammals, particularly kind of... well, the kind of animals I imagine ancient man also dreamed about: lions, wolves, bears, dogs, panthers, cattle/bulls... Snakes and insects seem a bit less common.

      While reading I recalled some of my own animal attack dreams... I haven't kept a dream journal though so some of them are pretty vague.

      Most of my animal-related nightmares involve spiders. I'm pretty arachnophobic in real life so it's not surprising that it follows me in dreams. I'm not even sure that confronting such things in a lucid dream would help because I'm so terrified of them in real life.

      The only dream I've ever died in involved a giant spider. It was in the basement of my house and my mom was upstairs, playing a piano. It was probably about 6 feet tall and in a web that spanned the room. It talked, and taunted me, daring me to try to run away. I was frozen in fear, but when I did try to run, it easily caught me on the stairs and killed me. As my senses faded I felt it move past me to kill my mom. Then I woke up.

      That one happened when I was maybe 11 or 12, but I still get recurring spider dreams. Usually they are normal sized (still large for spiders though) and not actively attacking me but rather sitting in doorways and things. Like I'll be in a room in a house and notice a spider. Usually these spiders are also very brightly or unusually coloured too, like being all white with black spots for example, or coloured like a toxic frog. So I feel immediately like these are deadly spiders, and as soon as I see one, I look around the room and realize that they are everywhere, and often clustered around doorways and windows, preventing my escape. Those dreams terrify me...

      About a month ago I had a dream about a demon dog. In the dream I had a false awakening where some friends of the family came into my house in the middle of the night, worried because they had a sick dog and needed someone to take care of it for a few hours while they found a vet. So they left it lying under a table in my bedroom. I think I must have fallen asleep and had another awakening later, and I went to check on the dog. But as I approached the table, I realized with dawning horror that it was upside down and stuck to/hanging from the underside of the table, like some sort of alien. I woke up right after that, screaming.

      I also recently had a dream involving a pack of t-rexes chasing after me, but for whatever reason this was less of a disturbing dream and more of an adventure, Indiana Jones style. I eventually escaped by jumping like 20 stories off a rusted bridge into choppy ocean water, and when I got to shore I realized I'd jumped into another dimension, so I was fine.

      Looking forward to reading/sharing more!

      Welcome to the animal attack thread, Stray.

      I've had a few spider dreams too. And T-Rex dreams as well. I've also had my share of snakes, and other insects. But lions, tigers, and bears, are probably the most common for me.

      The animal dreams can be a great dreamsign. I hope you will eventually be able to use Lucidity to overcome your spiders.
      It's not only about the dreams. It's a way of life.

      I didn't read previous posts but will after I post mine.

      The only attacks of animals in dreams I have had are horses or dear or such running into me all of a sudden. They just run unto me. Nothing special or anything but they usually surprise me when I have turned around and it appears from nowhere running. I usually wake up by the surprise if anything.

      Other than that I've had various encounters whit brown bears. Though not ever a physical attack but more like stalking and looking at me. I can then follow them around at times.
      There was this one time when a bear was about to attack me. But we were in a river. I climbed unto the ground next and looked back. I saw the bear coming closer so I jumped directly at it and hugged and started to play lovingly whit it. Was fun. Was nothing dangerous about it at all.

      Non animals I've had various encounters whit monsters.

      There was this one encounter whit this gigantic dragon some time back. Was recent into things I've encountered whit reptilian stuff I had read back then. I was in some kind of darker vortex going upward and then there this dragon appeared. I yelled "I'm not afraid of you" or something to the likes of that. The dragon replied "Oh... really?" There was a bit of retreat but I tried to stay my ground as the dragon seemed to make a "threatening" swoop around to check if I really meant what I said. For sure I was a little scared but I hadn't really firmed my beliefs up on that nothing can harm you really back then.

      I've encountered some lions also. but they were just walking about doing nothing to me. There was this one sabre toothed tiger once that tried t attack me but I just grabbed onto it's long teeth to hold it at bay. This is my most recent "real" animal attack I think.

      the other night a sea lion was chasing me, while a dog was trying to stop it
      normally it's people that attack me in my dreams.

      I was dreaming last night that I'm walking in some woods. I'm following a path through and then I see a gray wolf. The wolf sees me too and leaps to me, then bites my leg. I get scared and desperately try to get get the wolf off me. After a small fight i break free from the bite and start running(actually limping, for I feel pain in my leg in the dream :/ ). The wolf follows me walking slowly and calmly. After a while I get out of the forest, thinking that I've gotten away. Suddenly I see a whole pack of wolves ahead of me(3 or 4 wolves to be certain). I turn back and see the first wolf coming slowly to me. For awhile I'm just watching the wolves, they are watching me too, waiting. Then I panic and start running, but they catch me up pretty fast and bite both my legs this time(and I can remember it was a painful feeling :@ ). After that I get too scared/excited and wake up. I get up from bed and see my legs being there unharmed. I feel happy it was just a dream

      Took me a while to find this thread.

      It's still happening!

      Last night I got chased by a giant dinosaur sized lizard that was intent on eating me. The thing looked like a Komodo dragon. Only it was giant like a dinosaur. I was walking along the shore of a river when I hear the footsteps like in "Jurassic park". "Boom Boom Boom" I realize there is a dinosaur coming for me and I jump into the river to try to swim away. And I see this giant lizard come out of the trees, forked tongue flicking out at me. Luckily the thing didn't come into the water after me and I made my escape down river.

      And again last night...

      Shark!

      There is an overpass bridge with a staircase descending to a small island on a body of water. I think it's a wide river. For some reason I start to go down into the water and swim. Right away I see a shark swimming around and coming towards me and I realize swimming here is out of the question. I climb back up onto the little rocky island. The shark actually comes up out of the water after me, trying to bite at me as I retreat. I'm scooting backwards on my butt kicking at it's face until I manage to kick the shark back into the water.

      For the rest of the dream I'm trying to figure out how to get off this Island with the shark circling and wanting to have me for lunch. Apparently climbing back up the staircase and using the overpass was no longer an option either but I don't remember why.
