This Video Of A Giant Snake Opening A Door May Traumatize You For Life

Hide your kids, hide your wife. While you’re at it, hide yourself too.

“Bored of being in a dark room, she flips on the light, opens the door and bails. This particular episode takes place at 1am. This is why we keep doors locked with her around. We don’t need her harassing the neighbors.”

Can the snake hear the “good Job” and understand it??? It’s as if they have trained the snake to do it.

Well, only if you're afraid of snakes.

CNN is trying to get in contact with the owner.

It is a rescue snake

“Bored of being in a dark room, she flips on the light, opens the door and bails. This particular episode takes place at 1am.

.....and at 1 AM, the snake's owner just happened to be right outside the door, capturing it all on video. There was nothing impressive about this.

My old roommate’s 6’ Burmese Python could do the same and did so many times. They are smart enough to know the door is the way out of a room and they climb it inadvertently turning the knob.

so they do it with round knobs too?

So you would say that this is not intentionally going for a handle but just sliding around on the door and it accidentally turns the knob?

Yes, they do it with knobs just as easily as with levers. The snake can sense the air coming from under and around the door and knows it’s best way of escaping the room is to get to the other side. Not finding a way under, they climb. My roommate’s snake would slither up the jamb, wrapping itself around the knob and in doing so it would turn releasing the door just as you see in this video. It was also very adept at escaping its cage so we never knew where it was in the house. My GF would never again enter the house once she learned of this. :-)

That's a good question. My only thing is that he smacks the floor pretty hard...I hope it didn't hurt him.

yeah gator lost because it let go of the python and it backed away from it.

what I dont quite get is why the gator didn’t smash what was in his mouth rending the python useless

Goodness!

We were out kayaking this afternoon in a pond....a huge black snake slithered by in the water... I was glad to be in a boat.

Good nite moon. Good nite snake!

If a snake ever opened my door, it would soon be a dead reptile. Although I really like lizards, especially small and cute ones (I have a dozen different species of itsy bitsy lizards...so cute!), I stand with Indiana Jones on the subject of snakes. I hates ‘em!

That video doesn’t show a snake opening any doors; it shows a door being opened with the involvement of a snake. We have no idea what was happening on the other side of the closed door.

And ~that~ is how we all wound up praying for Alice’s safe return, way back when.

He, however, used his neck like a wrench and deftly opened the *outside lock* on his door by flipping the inside catch, thus beginning his 3 week ‘crawlabout’.

“Lizard brains” my butt.

Nope.

To this day, Alice constantly fiddles with his new _escape proof_ ~round~ lock, hoping to repeat his adventures in the walls.

It is not ‘accidental’.

It is intentional, willful and they apparently *never* forget their successes.

What cracks me up is the snake has the classic python “Derp!” facial expression....;D
