This is a very, very, very intelligent spirit. He thinks he has you all figured out as demonstrated by grabbing his foot and dismissing the entire tour group. This is done as he likes to think of himself as a "guard dog" and so many people frustrate him and he feels overwhelmed because he cannot guard his territory. So, he has started to bite his foot (originally out of frustration) and as a result has correlated biting his foot with the tour group being dismissed, not looking at him, etc. and he gets what he wants. No people staring at him that he feels helpless in being successful at guarding his territory. He is one that could be assigned a job and give him purpose. He also gave me the image of the statue of another animal. It appears as though he is attached to this and would like to have it in his surroundings.
