The albino burmese python demonstrates some impressive dexterity, revealing to the world that a closed door is no obstacle for a snake.
A video of a giant yellow snakeÂ successfully opening a door was uploaded to Vimeo two years ago and only now it has become an internet hit.
The home video shows “Julius”, a 16-foot female albino burmese python bursting through a closed door and crashing onto the floor, reports The Telegraph.
The snake’s owner, Jenner, says when his pet 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 neighbours,” she adds.
It seems like wild animals and pets will never stop to shock us. Thus,earlier this month a video was uploaded to YouTube showing a wild tiger whichÂ fell asleep right on the top of a car.
âI couldnât believe it when he started to sleep while we were driving along. Thatâs the first time Iâve ever known this to happen,â said the owner of the car who was in the vechicle at the moment. âI couldnât get him off until I went over some really rough ground that he didnât like.â
âAt least he didnât bite one of the other wheels. Then weâd be in big trouble,â he notes in the video.
By the way, back in April reports emerged claiming thatÂ a Texas woman met a tiger when she went to bathroomÂ after sheÂ had finished watching the tiger show at the Isis Shrine Circus.
âI went in to use the bathroom, and a lady came in to get her daughter out and said there was a tiger loose,â Krehbiel said. âI didnât know it was in the bathroom, and I walked in the (open) door, which closed right after I had walked in. I saw the tiger; it was at most two feet in front of me, and I turned around calmly and walked back toward the door. Someone opened the door and said get out.â
The woman went on, revealing to reporters that the tiger she met in the bathroom âwasnât the biggest oneâ performing, but she estimated it was more than 250 pounds.
âIt was the closest I have ever been to a tiger not in a cage,â Krehbiel said. âYou donât expect to go in a bathroom door, have it shut behind you and see a tiger walking toward you.â
Chris Bird, manager at the Bicentennial Center, explained that the jungle cat escaped during the show, and staff quickly barricaded off the concourse.
He also added that the tiger veered off into an open bathroom and a security guard got people out, shut the door behind the tiger and barricaded the door, but forgot about the other one, the one Krehbiel went into.
The circus manager said he hadnât heard about Krehbielâs account until contacted by journalists but confirmed that it was âdefinitely accurate,â but he doesnât know how close she got to the tiger, reports .
âI am sure she saw the tiger because the bathroom is only 25 feet long,â Bird said. âOnce she saw the tiger, Iâm sure she knew to go the other way. Overall, it was a scary, surreal moment. I am glad no one was hurt or injured.â
