What got me interested in arachnids was a book I read from the local library. In the book I learned that scorpions haven't really changed all that much since they first appeared on earth. Their evolutionary growth was "very" little meaning the scorpions today are pretty much what you would be seeing back in their first start in life (except much smaller today).
Due to my curious nature I wanted to observe a scorpion's behavior at a higher level, so I decided to visit a local exotic pet shop and bought my first scorpion then BOOM! I got hooked and became a hobbyist in the world of arachnids. Later, I bought more scorpions and tarantulas.
Hope that answers your question.
