Default Whats the difference between fat tails and leos.

Hi whats the difference between fat tail gecko's and leopard geckos.

They look the same roughly and have the same care so whats the difference.

Are they easy to keep like leo's.

don't think they have the same care.. i think they look alike, apart from the fatter tails, but come from different places. I 'think' fat tails need higher humidity but that's only from memory so i could be wrong.

also they do look different .. leos tend to have slightly longer and slender bodies where as fat tails are a bit bulkier and there head is broader than a leopard gecko but it is slight

Fat-tailed geckos also have much darker eyes, rounder noses and softer, more velvety skin/scales.

They do need higher humidity than leopard geckos, and mine at least are slightly smaller than leos of the same age.
