Elephant Masters Modern Technology, Takes a Selfie

outdoorhub-photo-elephant-takes-a-selfie-2015-05-22_18-47-37A 22-year-old college student vacationing in Thailand found himself the subject of international headlines after an elephant stole his camera and snapped a selfie. The photo below may or may not be the world’s first elephant selfie, but for Christian LeBlanc of British Columbia, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

“I got the selfie of a lifetime, which I can’t take full credit for,” LeBlanc told ABC News. “Elephants are incredibly intelligent and it definitely makes you wonder if it was a conscious action.”

LeBlanc was recently on the island of Koh Phangan with his girlfriend when they decided to buy a basket of bananas to feed the elephants, a local tourist attraction. When LeBlanc ran out of bananas, the greedy elephant decided to investigate his camera and inadvertently caught a perfect shot of itself.

“Next thing I knew it grabbed my GoPro by the mount,” he said. “My GoPro was set to continuous shooting so when the elephant grabbed my camera, the result was the world’s first ever ‘Elphie!’”
