Watch Elephant take a S-Elphie with a GoPro

An elephant from Thailand grabs a GoPro for a selfie with his owner Christian LeBlanc on being gifted with a basket full of bananas, inventing the new trend of elphies among the animal kingdom

You must have heard of those perfectly timed wildlife captures of various rare animal encounters going viral over the internet but the another great chunk of this popularity lies with the selfie obsessed Instagram population who will do anything for a viral capture like the recent viral trend of a man being kissed back by the horse while taking a selfie. Apparently the animal kingdom has caught up with the trend as well, especially those motion sensing camera traps left in the wildlife for observing various changes to the system of flora and fauna, wherein they often end up with selfies taken by various curious animals such as monkeys, octopus, polar bears, etc.
