Elephant Grabs Tourist's GoPro and Takes World's First 'Elfie'


We've all taken the occasional 'selfie' with our pets, but can you imagine an actual elephant grabbing your camera and snapping a picture?



Christian LeBlanc, a 22-year-old college student, was studying abroad in Thailand with his girlfriend. While sight-seeing on Koh Phangan Island, they came across a couple of elephants. The two bought bananas nearby to feed the regal mammals. When LeBlanc ran out, one of the elephants grabbed his GoPro camera by its mount. The camera's continuous shooting feature resulted in the world's first ever 'Elphie'.
