Did you know?

Fat-tailed gecko males can be quite vocal during territorial disputes or to attract females – making a number of squeaks or clicks

African Fat-tailed Gecko

Hemitheconyx caudicinctus

These ground-dwellings geckos are mainly nocturnal. Unlike most geckos, fat-tailed geckos can blink and do not have sticky pads on their feet.



Size: Around 20cm in length
Weight: up to 90g



These geckos are found in the savannahs of West Africa, where they spend their day sheltering beneath stones, in burrows or in termite mounds.



These geckos feed on a variety of insects. They store fat in their tails to provide a source of energy when food is scarce – giving rise to their name!



Females lay 1 to 3 eggs in a clutch but can have a number of clutches a year, depending on conditions. The adults do not look after either the eggs or the young!



These lizards are not classed as threatened in the wild as they are believed to be common and widespread. However their population numbers and trend is unknown.
