It is time to “make me an offer” on my tarantulas page!


Just drop me an email, tell me which tarantula/tarantulas you would like and how much you would like to pay for each

(I may or may not be able to match your offer but there will always be a reduction. It really depends how much I paid and the time put in)


Remember, once the reduction appears on the website you will need to order quickly or someone else may bag the bargain! (the price may only be reduced for a day or two so please don’t ask unless you are ready to buy)


If you would like a photo of the actual spider (any size) just email - [email protected]

  • Israeli Gold Scorpion (Scorpio maurus palmatus) Adult/Sub-adult

Common Name: Israeli Gold Scorpion
Scientific Name: Scorpio maurus palmatus

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.
