    Question African Fat Tail or Leopard?

    I recently (last Thursday) received this gecko from someone who could not properly care for it. At first I thought it was a fat tailed gecko, but then I saw some pictures of some blizzard leopard geckos and now I'm not sure. She is patternless, so that does not help much.

    She has got much healthier in the 5 days I have had her. She came with kind of a nasty unsuitable setup, which I fixed yesterday when I received the rest of the new terrarium supplies from Amazon (new setup pictured) and she is enjoying her new home and coming out at night now. This is the first herp I have had since high school (~10 years ago) when I had anoles, but I am quickly learning all about geckos. I would eventually like to get her a boyfriend. Any advice would be appreciated, but mainly I am trying to figure out if she is a leapard gecko or an african fat tailed.

    This forum looks pretty awesome. Thanks in advance!

    I can't tell from your pictures. Probably either super hypo or hypo, but I would need to see a full body shot.

    Edit: I just looked at the second picture. It appears to be a super hypo. Also, why do you have a tropical plant in there? These guys are from arid/semi-arid environments.

    Because I thought she was a fat-tailed and I needed to get the humidity to 70%... although I see the jury is still out on the question... we've got 3 vs 2 now... and I'm finding alternating pictures that look somewhat similar via google of leopard and AFTs still. I will try to take a better picture. Is there any specific indicator that I would be aiming for?

    I am at fault for one of the AFT I mis-clicked, going for leopard.
