Common Name: Israeli Gold Scorpion
Scientific Name: Scorpio maurus

Size: Adult/Sub-adult
Status: Wild Caught

A pretty desert scorpion, active and sandy coloured.

How I keep mine

I keep my Israeli Gold scorpions in plastic boxes with silver sand on the base and pieces of bark or half a flower pot to hide under. I place my boxes on a shelf with a heat mat on it, I use a strip heat mat (15cm wide) and this covers part of the base of the box (several boxes can fit on one long mat). Although they are a desert species and I keep them quite dry, I always try to give them a little moisture, this is often a small piece of damp cotton wool in one corner of the box.  I use plastic boxes for my scorpions as I have lots of species and don't have the space to keep them all in individual tanks but of course they do equally well when housed in a plastic or glass tank and are much more visible, it is also easier to control the humidity levels. I feed my scorpions on crickets or cockroaches once a week. The adult scorpions seem to eat “when they feel like it” which can be quite infrequently. I always house my adult scorpions individually.
