    They are two different species, NOT just two different leopard geckos.

    They come from completely different parts of the world.

    Yes they do look similar, but have subtle differences. Aside from pattern, AFTs tend to be bulkier.

    In theory, they *could* interbreed, but as they have different husbandry requirements, it wouldnt be the best idea to do so. People have had clutches from this pairing, but i dont believe the embryos survived the incubation.
