    Hi everyone, I am planning on buying a fat tail and wanted to haunt the forum a bit and learn all I can before getting one. I have 4 Leopard geckos now Jimmy, Gem, Jewel and Jazz, all are female. (Jimmy was supposed to be male and surprised me) I've been told the fat tails are pretty much the same to take care of and justwant to be sure.

    Welcome to HC Network....As far as care, they are pretty close to Leos and I believe they need a bit more humidity....good luck finding one and post pics when you get it!!

    My friend had a pair back a few years ago. They are insanely easy to care for. Have you tried asking Google for a caresheet on them? Look up a few and kind of average them out (or take the mode), that works well for me.

    Welcome to Herp Center :) Fat-tails are similar to leos in both appearance and care, but as mentioned, they need higher humidity. Their habitat in the wild is rather dry, but they hide in humid burrows. I know there are fat-tail keepers around here somewhere, I'm sure some of them could give you more first-hand info on their care.

    Hi Lukus,

    I have two leopard geckos, and just got two AFTs today, so I'm also working on getting the care distinctions right. I had an AFT in the past, but she died of stomatitis. I can admit that it was partially my fault because I was such a novice, but the vet did an abominable job of treating her and educating me, so my guilt burden is not excessive.

    Anyway, did you find some? How's it going?
