African Fat Tail geckos morphs :
Popularity and Genetics
In the past few years fat tail geckos have become more available in the pet trade through captive breeding. Hobbyists have taken notice to fat tails as well because of all the recently emerging color and pattern mutations. Fat tails can be kept by both experienced and new hobbyists, and the variety of attractive color morphs becoming available as well as the new morphs that will soon be available, make this species more desirable to work with. Fat tail geckos may soon rival the popularity of other commonly kept and bred geckos in the industry, and there is a lot of work that can be done with this species genetically for years to come.
In just the past few years we have seen Patternless, White Outs, Zeros, and Granites become available. In 2008 we started releasing heterozygous Patternless and a few Patternless, and in 2009 we began releasing the White Outs and Zeros. These new morphs are the beginning of the new fat tails being released into the hobby. In the next few years we have a couple of different morph fat tails that we will also be releasing, but at the moment we are still determining the genetic patterns of the traits.
Below is a list of fat tail mutations and their genetic backgrounds:
Banded -Wild type
White foot -Recessive
Aberrant / Jungle -Polygenetic / Line bred
White Out -Co-Dominant
Stinger -Inconclusive, but believed to be non-striped zero
Patternless White Out -Homozygous Patternless and heterozygous White Out

It is an exciting time to be an African Fat Tail Gecko (AFT) breeder. AFT breedings have been producing new morphs/genetics over the past 5-6 years and the excitement is starting to build. There are many combination morphs that have not been tried and breeders haven’t hit all the visual forms of the combinations they have produced.
Below is a list of current African Fat Tail gecko morphs and their genetic make up.
Also We add some additional morphs and new morphs not included in the list from geckotime website to make it a complete african fat tailed geckos morphs guide :
1- Albino :
2- Aberrant Fat Tail Gecko
3- Amel White Outs
No photos available and rare morphs usually founds as a het with the other morphs
1- Banded ( Wild morph )
1- Caramel : it is hard to find the caramel as a pure morph today .. usually come with other morphs hybrids .. examples :
- Caramel Albino Fat Tail Gecko
- Caramel Albino Whiteouts :
- Caramel Zulu :
- Caramel Snow :
1- Ghost : it is hard to find the ghost as a pure morph today .. usually come with other morphs hybrids , ghost is Recessive morph ..
- Striped ghost :
- Het Ghost :
- Aberrant Ghost White Out :
- Striped Ghost White Out
1- Oreo :
- Striped Oreo :
- Striped Oreo White Out :
- Aberrant Oreo White Out :
- Caramel Anery/Oreo :
1- Patternless :
- Patternless Whiteout :
- Ghost Patternless :
1- Starburst : Polygenetic/Line BredBlushed head with a tint of orange, blushed bands, orange at the base of the tail and light background coloring.
2- Stinger : The back bands are connected. The bottom band comes to a point which resembles a stinger on an bee or wasp.Not proven: allelic with PatternlessThis is a newer morph and was originally thought to be co-dominant with the super form being a super stinger. Super Stingers/Zeros have since been proven to be recessive. The stinger/zero form has been thought to be a heterozygous marker similar to highly speckled leopard geckos that are het for the simple recessive traits of patternless or blizzard.
