The genus Fat-Tailed Geckos - Oedura - inhabits the eastern regions of Australia. The most famous representative of the Australian velvet gecko, which successfully breeds in captivity.

Fat-tailed geckos are nocturnal. In nature, they are usually found on the ground under fallen leaves or other foliage, under which geckos hide during the day.

They climb perfectly, they can often be seen on the walls. Keep in small groups, one male and a small number of females. Geckos of different sexes can show territorial aggression.

Adult geckos reach a length of up to 15 cm. On their feet they have sticky pads that help them with climbing. Frequently encountered brick color with a red or brown tint.

Geckos are quite secretive and often hide in crevices of rocks or under the bark of trees.
