The African Fat Tailed gecko is one that you don't see often in the pet store trade so an online breeder is your best choice for a healthy one. They are mostly just to look at in their enclosure because they don't sit still very long in your hands and are very delicate. They will lose their tail if you aren't careful and drop them so they are good for older children or adults. They don't eat very much and can go for many weeks without eating which, to me, was quite disturbing. I am used to monitor lizards and their hardiness.
