I named her Twiggy and she was fed baby crickets once a week. I never tried to handle her because she was wild but she was beautiful!

Wow, she's pretty. You can buy those at kenthebugguy.com.
Heres my rabid wolf spider:

Those trantulas so make me want to get one. I've always wanted one, but the mother is entirely against them! And beautiful spiders btw.

The best way to help is to be forgiving. People aren't made with a book of ultimate information in their head. We need to inform, not insult; give advice, not lectures; and realize we're all human and we all make mistakes

Aw man, that sucks. Idk what to tell you. When I lived with my mom she was completely fine with it. She was already used to me bringing home baby snakes and various bugs from the woods, haha.
But, I did always find that when there was something I shouldn't do (or in your case, get) it was always easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.
Of course your mom might be different.

Haha, thats what my sister in law's boyfriend always says.

I did get a scorpion once, but I ended up bringing it back to the pet store because I just wasn't that interested in it. Also it was an emperor scorp so it needed lots of moisture and mold began to grow in its tank at least once a week, it got to be a pain. If I ever get one again (which I probably will), it'll be a desert species so I don't have to worry about mold.

Which species are you thinking about getting?

I want to say the only species they sell in pet stores is emperor scorpions because of their gentle nature.

In most pet stores thats is. Corporate stores only sell emperors. But I'm lucky enough to have a pet store nearby that sells lots of dangerous venomous bugs. Haha. You just have to be 18 or older or have a parent sign for you when you buy them. Just today I was there looking at a camel spider.
Maybe you have a pet store like that somewhere near you? If not, you can always go online and look at the different species for sale. I can recommend you some good sites if you'd like.
