The fear of death is divided into two components - physiology and psychology. Only the first component of fear is inherent in animals.

The most terrible in death is an uncertainty. Therefore many religions offer people life “beyond the grave“ or reincarnation. Stories are known precedents of such deep belief in life after death that people lent to acquaintances money on condition that they will be returned in the following life! Of course, such people had the minimum fear of death. And here the Hinduism misfired - it promises revival, but does not specify in what body. The thought that the following life should be carried out in a cover, for example, of a manure bug drives Hindus to despair therefore the fear of death at Hindus is nearly stronger, than at non-believers.
Children who do not realize what is it, lovers who are mentally dissolved in other person, and soldiers who rather often and close saw death are not afraid of death.
