S maurus fuscus should be a dark brown or blackish scorp. S maurus palmatus is a yellowish colour. both are found in Israel. In fact S maurus is found in like 21 countries so take the 'Israeli' part being conjecture for the scorpions place of origin in the craptastic common naming of Israeli gold.

Do you have some experience in keeping scorps? , cause you have some very nasty ones in between your new additions.....

if i said yes,i would be lying.i have use to have a tarantula collection.the cobalt blue and the usambra.along with a few other nasty's. i know its not the same thing. but i use precautions as much as possiable and the last few post on caution really gave me some ideas like keeping them in seperate enclosures inside of my 55 gal,secure lids.i alway's use tongs when working around them and i do not try holding them.scince i have had a h.transplant i am not chancing it.and yes i know i am already taking enough of a chance by just having them in the same house as me.but my enterest in them is strong.i feel more comfortable housing them than tarantula's.they are fast but they don't climb like t's do and i have chased down some really fast t's{tiger rump}!they are cool but i alway's give them their space and and i am always alert when working with them{stay alert stay alive}army motto! i know the 5 starlevel scorps in my collection i read as much as possiable before i got'em.so i know the risk i take but i am comfortable with it.:cool:

keep your S.m.fuscus on peat. They are not desert scorps and should be kept a little humid.
