Why do snakes exist?
Snakes exist because they are one part of the nature and our planet. And why couldn't they exist?! The same is to ask: why do people exist?

Any irrational fear - and it MUST be irrational - is a phobia and will have a long word ending in ~phobia as its medical term. A fear of snakes is not a phobia, it's perfectly proper to be afraid of snakes, but to be afraid of them in a place where they don't exist, or are most unlikely to be found, would be a phobia.
