As the title says, my birthday is coming up and I don't know what I should get. I am more interested in scorpions but I am thinking of also getting a T (one day!). My only concerns for the list are regards to amount of space needed, size (if it's a spider), and speed. I am fine with toxicity. I really would like suggestions. :)

Not a lot in the actual hobby but I have a good amount of prior experience with arachnids. For any reference I have a Parabuthus schlecteri and a Sicarius atm and they are doing great.

Agreed with R. junceus. Great species and easy to keep too.

You own a Sicarius, get whatever you want at this point. See anything that interests you?

Sounds interesting. Would it be a good starter T? I don't have any tarantulas yet as I'm focusing on scorps :D

You should get a mature pair OR multiple slings of C. gracilis. Being extremely inexpensive, they come in a variety of morphs and you can have a nice communal setup when older. May even get scorplings yourself ;) Love mine, my female Eve is always active and roaming around :D

You don't own tarantulas? Well my friend, don't you know they own their own turret(eye placement)? They are friggin 8 legged tanks with hydraulic movement! They also have their own smoke bombs(utricating hairs) and cannons(poop)! They also put tripping wires on the floor to detect prey and enemies!

Yeah. I have been thinking about getting C.gracilis very hard. Not sure if my parents will let me. It seems that they refuse to answer my questions regarding getting more scorpions for my birthday.

Every boulder can be moved my friend: it just takes a little pushing ;) That stinks, hope you can get them eventually though :D

Technically not. But life is to dare, always. Besides, the Goddess is a less of a "troublemaker" if compared to certain NW I had :-s

If you want a Hottentotta Franzwerneri go for it. I love how they look. The more I learn about Hottentottas, the more I like them. I've been paying some overdue attention to my Hottentotta Judaicus lately. Playing around with his terrarium. Added a cork round and some hard wood. He seems to be enjoying it. I hope you get one. Please post pics if you do :) Good luck and happy birthday man.

Agreed. Swift's has slings of these right now. Beautiful little orange scorpion. Plus you get a choice of a freebie T, I recommend the OBT of course to go with the orange theme =-)

The shipping prices are keeping me away from Swifts. I really want to buy from Swifts but it's just shipping that's driving me away :/

You can't go wrong with B. albopilosum, definitely one of the most docile T's I've ever dealt with.
