Geyri’s breeder is also a talented artist. He does commission art work of uros and other lizards, as well as drawings of martial art scenes that he holds a black belt in. I got him to draw Geyri for me. It’s an amazing picture, all the more meaningful to me because he is responsible for her being alive.
I sent him a picture of her standing on the African woman in her house, the thing that reminds me to respect the fact that she comes from such a far away place, a place I don’t understand well.
She is brumating, sleeping for several days and coming out then only for a short time, to see if I left any food right outside the little mountain she is sleeping in. Soon she will stop coming out and that will be full brumation, the deeper and longer sleep, and I might not see her again until March.
Many thanks to Phillip Lietz of AridsOnly for this wonderful art work. It will hang in a special place where I can see it all the time. http://www.aridsonly.com/ https://www.facebook.com/aridsonly/ https://www.instagram.com/aridsonly/?hl=en
