Living without thumbs must be very difficult, but one tortoise didn’t let this stop him from getting into his house. The determined animal managed to “flipper” open a sliding door[1] and make his way inside.

From Mashable:

Jeffrey the tortoise was tired of being outside. He wanted to go inside, where the temperature is consistent, the snacks are abundant, and he can hang with his human friends.

Jeffrey was faced with only one option: he had to open the door himself. And he did, albeit very slowly. But we bet Jeffrey’s used to that.

We’re more concerned that he didn’t shut the door behind him. Be respectful, Jeffrey — the cat might get out.

Watch the video below:

Now if only they could train him to shut the door….
