Now Snakes Can (Gasp!) Open Doors: VIDEO

JuliusPrepare yourself for Julius, the 16-foot yellow Burmese python.  He's coming, and even closed doors can't stop him. As horrifying as the prospect of a lengthy, unwanted visitor is, however, it turns out that Julius may just be a big ole' softy.

Mashable reports:

The video below, which stars a 16-foot albino burmese python, was uploaded two years ago by Vimeo user Jenner. However, the snake, named "Julius," is the latest pet to experience Internet fame.

According to Jenner, when the snake is tired of being in a dark room, "she flips on the light, opens the door and bails."

"This is why we keep doors locked with her around. We don't need her harassing the neighbors," add Jenner in the video description.

  3. Talk about people who should have their children taken away...

    Snakes cannot be domesticated, and they do not bond with humans (or anything for that matter). The best you can ever hope for with a snake is that you are not perceived as a threat, and not perceived as food. Children are NOT too small to be considered food for such a large snake. This will end in tragedy some day.

  5. If the snake doesn't get him, that electric socket he's about to stick his fingers in surely will.

  6. Opening doors is one thing, but there's no way in hell I'd let a snake that big near a child!

  9. I've seen cats that jump up and can open lever handles. A youtube vid show an octopus twisting and opening a jar to get at food inside. Animals have intelligence. They're not really so different from us. It's probably time we stopped eating them. We can easily live on soybean products and other forms of protein. How can we condemn the eating of dogs and dolphins and horses in some countries when we eat cows and pigs here? Horsemeat -- factory farming and slaughterhouses -- by the way, are coming to the United States. The USDA has approved horse slaughtering plants this year in the US.

  10. "Snake" and "pet" are oxymorons.

  11. At least they got the right pet to dispose of those annoying tiny versions of human-type things.

  12. That's a joke right? Some parents are truly irresponsible.

  13. They can open doors, but can they unclog drains?

  14. Wonder what they feed a snake that big...

    Children maybe?

  15. Now what kind of crazy parent would let their baby play with a GIANT snake and the thing can open doors!

  16. This is beyond creepy, however, it's true, the kid is being supervised. Not so sure that reptiles can't develop feelings for humans (apart from an appetite for), crocodiles have been proven to be able to.

  17. "But he never squushed the kid before...."

    Realistically, if the python, which is a constrictor, decides it wants a snack, regardless of "supervision" I doubt there is any way that the kid could be retrieved before it's too late.
