The full classification of simple closed geodesics on regular tetrahedra in the hyperbolic space is described. The asymptotics of the number of simple closed geodesics of length not more than L, with L tending to infinity, is found.

Keywords: closed geodesics, Lobachevsky space, regular tetrahedra
