Not only can can it devour a deer the size of a small child in one bite, but this killer python can also open doors.

In this amazing yet terrifying footage, Julius the 16-foot albino Burmese python can turn a closet handle with her own body weight.

Yet another reason for you to lock your doors at night.

Okay, this is by far my favorite animal video, now. Awesome! I had no idea you could train a snake like this.

I wonder what the owner's fellow apartment dwellers thought after they saw this!

I'd want out too if I was a giant snake in an apt. :(

I saw this video, a couple of days ago, and it completely freaked me out.... A 16 foot snake opening a door! :blink:

That is something right out of one of my nightmares!

Nobody knows ... I still believe it is the shape in the sun ... maybe they think its a bird nest or something ... so hungry pythons will investigate ... :yes:

the monkeys on the other hand ... yes ... they wear it on the heads ... cheeky buggers ... :lol:

the ladies hates the monkeys ... usually you never see it again once the monkeys makes a grab ... so funny as it is they don't like it ...

the snakes ... it no harm done
they'll coil around a bit and if it's windy they'll bite and fall off the line ... its hilarious ... then they just go on its way ... and the ladies gets the undies back,
sometimes not even needing another wash ...

As the article only focused on his ability to open doors  ( due to the fact he was trained to )  it doesn't say how he caught an infection.. But, the poor snake is gone...

In a way, I kinna felt a bit sorry for him, as he was struggling to open the second door..He tried and tried but nothing.
