    Brumation or something else?

    Hi everyone,
    i have a 10+ year old beardie named buddy who im a bit concerned about.
    She has been acting very strange lately. sleeping a lot in the open of her tank. rarely eating.
    last night she looked like she was gasping for air but today she just seems like she is asleep.
    Colours all seem to be very nice and bright but still sleeping.

    i'm giving her a nice warm bath atm in case its dehydration and she was actively drinking water in front of me.

    i do have her booked in to see a vet on thursday morning and to be honest last night i thought she was on her way out.
    any ideas?

    The average life expectancy is from 7-12 years but some specimens have been known to last longer.
    Smaller species range from 5-7 years.
    As an example my oldest boy will be 10 in November.
