They're not majorly different. Fat tails are stockier than leos and have smaller 'hands and feet'. They are shyer than leos generally, and slower and more deliberate in their movements. so therefore a bit better to handle. Males get a fair bit bigger than females. They can't be kept with leos mainly because they need a more humid environment. They're viv should be misted at least once a day as well as having a moist hide. Also, I know some people do it, but I don't personally agree with keeping different species together really.

Personally I prefer fat-tails and would one day like to specialise in breeding them. Another difference if you want to breed, is they do have to be cooled properly before breeding as they don't breed as readily as leos.

Also fat-tails have such charming faces and gorgeous eyes. If your thinking of getting some, do as they are wonderful to own.

fat tails are quality.

Bit more humid viv than leos, but not much different apart from that. Much more friendly, they also seem a bit more inquisitive.

They look good as well. If you can get one with a stripe down the bakc they look awesome.

they are great...kinda like stoned leopard geckos (if you could get such a thing!)
you can also get some varying morphs although they have not been bred in anyway near as many numbers cos they are just a little bit harder than leos...
lovely things! wish i had a pair...
