Let alone having hands constructed so they would have been able to  open them. 
If we were pushed to >really<
portray them as intelligent as chimps(which is beyond laughable), we'd have to 
make them use the jaws to open the doors instead of those sideway-motion, 
wing-like folding hooks they had for hands.

But then... who's Spielberg to care?  He only wants 'realistic' monsters, not 
accuracy. Get me Monty Python or Terry Gilliam anytime, they'd do a better job 
and the humor would be intentional!
