There are a few differences between the two species.

Here’s the pictures.....



Each species is available in a variety if morphs. These are the most common morphs of both species.



(1st pic is leopard geckos, and 2nd pic is an african fat tail gecko)

Another big difference is care. Leopard geckos need the humidity below 50% because they are from Pakistan.
Fat tail geckos need the humidity above 50%, their range is from Senegal to Cameroon.

These are the most obvious differences I can think of, hope this helps.
