Preventing scratches on enclosure doors

Is there anything I can do for that? Leo is glass surfing CONSTANTLY after waking up from brumation, he’s already scratched dents in the sliding door and pvc walls in his enclosure. The funny thing is, his nails are nice and dull right now but he’s still causing damage. Is there any way I can prevent this damage?

Just wondering if you have been taking him out of his enclosure. He is probably stressed. Maybe if you take him out more he will start to stop scratching. For the walls, you could put climbable walls on your walls as your bearded dragon can’t scratch his enclosure walls. Something sort of like this, you can look for https://www.petcircle.com.au/product/exo-terra-rock-background/rp26 or there is this https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/1207653405/reptile-climbable-wall-climbing-wall-for. For the sliding door could you somehow line it with a thin reptile carpet or thin clear shelf liner, putting it up to the height your beardie scratches? Hopefully, this helps you.

He’s got spring craziness and post-brumation energy, he’s about that age. Thanks.

My Foxy is doing the same thing. 🤪
The only thing that saves me is that I have a room where he can spend all his enormous energy, otherwise he would destroy his terrarium. :ROFLMAO:
Can you tell me, how is your appetite?
Foxy eats one dubia once every 3-4 days and refuse everything else.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
