Scorpio maurus is a species of North African and Middle Eastern scorpion, also known as the large-clawed scorpion or Israeli gold scorpion. There are many sub-species of this scorpion, 19 of which were described by Fet et al.Although its venom contains a weak neurotoxin called maurotoxin,
 
This is a small or medium-sized scorpion 3 inches (76 mm) from the family Scorpionidae. It has brown back and golden claws. S. maurus is not a dangerous scorpion for humans. Hence, there are no records of fatalities.

This species of scorpion can be found in very deep burrows in deserts and occasionally sparse woodland. Its habit of creating very deep burrows means that in captivity this scorpion is often comfortable with higher humidity: as sand that is deep would be moisture, thereby creating a comparatively humid burrow.
