both packages are of an equal value, it's millipedes vs scorpions!

should i get

A.) a group of four 5" Archispirostreptus gigas

or...

b.) a 6" Heterometrus spinifer, and a 6" Pandius cavimanus

It all depend what your into. I learned to have be excepting of other bug so I got myself a few T's and a centipede. But I'm a scorp lover all the way. But personally I'll probably go with the milliepes since I have none and I already have 2 of each of those sp. of scorpion.

it depends on what you want...

if you post this in the scorpion forum then ofcourse the majority would recommend option B

being as how there is such a huge difference between the two options and its all purely based on personal preferance im going to have to go ahead and say this is a pointless question.

It's like asking "What should I eat for breakfast? Cereal or oatmeal?"

From what I was told the African millies are similar care as the H spinifers and P cavimanus, so if you master one the other will be easy. I bought my scorpions first (had them for 18 months), and then bought two millies later at a reptile show because the family wanted them. They aren't as interesting as the scorpions and you need to feed them daily (adult scorpions semi weekly to bi weekly), I have 2 and they consume alot of lettuce and such, producing alot of waste that needs cleaned alot. The first and last time I handled my millies it pooped and peed all over my hand (as a defense method I think)

IMHO, go for the scorpions, get their conditions right and then get the millies.
