Scared of big fish

Am I alone in this fear? Like I can hardly stand to look at them. Recently I saw a full grown oscar and I couldnt stand near the tank. I also saw some big catfish in with a, while not fully grown still wayyyy too big for its tank, clown knifefish which was also terrifying. Even at the zoo looking at the sharks is only managable cause I like sharks, but they are soo big.

I dunno, I just find it odd that I like fish but not big fish.

I used to be a bit uncomfortable around them. I found that out when a friend of mine bought a tank from someone that had had fish in it for years, so they were fully grown... they were banded leperinus and a bunch of convict cichlids. The cichlids weren't too bad, but i was really freaked out by the banded leperinus. I just got used to them eventually though... I would sit and force myself to watch them.
