"You're supposed to lock the door!"

When adventurers go on African safaris, they are hoping for a great close animal encounter. But here's one encounter that got a bit too close.

A video is going viral of a family on Safari in South Africa, and it was all spurred by an unlocked door.

"Oh my gosh! I didn't know they could do that!" a woman screams in the background after the lioness easily opens the door with her teeth.

The people inside the car were able to get the door shut again without the lioness making herself at home in the car.

Our favorite part of the video? A lady at the end says, "Well, now won't you have a story to tell!"

Yes. Yes she does.
