A very special artwork picture

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

    • Thanks. It’s disgusting when she brumates, but overall she’s a pretty well spoiled little lizard. Best life for our animals, as you know so well. I’ve also enjoyed learning about the culture of where her species comes from.

  1. Wow, imagine we would also disappear for a few months, just to sleep and wait for spring… I kinda like this idea… 😉
