We have a pair of African Fat Tailed Geckos at work and I think they are super cute. They are always happy to be woken up during the day and handled and once awake, will even take a locust or a waxworm off us. If they're not woken up though we never see them.

They are very simple and easy to care for, requiring only a few minutes work a day to clean, feed and change the water and due to their small size, only need a small enclosure, with no specialist lighting as they're nocturnal. Along with a few other species of geckos I think I'd rate them one of the easiest to care for.

If you want something that's active in the day then this species could be a little boring, but if you just want something low maintenance then I think they're great.
