How one elephant took this selfie and became an internet sensation

How one elephant took this selfie and became an internet sensation

Showing that the obsession with selfies has finally spread to the animal kingdom, an elephant has used a Canadian tourist’s GoPro camera to take a memorable holiday snap.

Christian LeBlanc was feeding the elephant in question a basket of bananas with his girlfriend on a Thai island. According to LeBlanc, the elephant used its trunk to grab the camera by the mount.

GoPro cameras can be set to take photos continuously, which is what happened when the elephant took possession. This left LeBlanc with a multitude of images from the experience, including the now iconic “elphie” seen above.
