Elephant Selfie Snapped With B.C. Traveller Is Just Adorable

We've seen the octopus selfie, the sea eagle selfie, the giraffe selfie and even a slelfie, courtesy of a friendly sloth.

Now, we have the elephant selfie — dubbed the "elphie."

Vancouver's Christian LeBlanc posted the epic snap to Instagram earlier this month, and it's since garnered international attention.

We can see why:

Just had an article written about my #elphie (elephant selfie, clever I know) in the Daily Mail and the Mirror UK 💁🏼

LeBlanc had been feeding the elephant in Koh Phangan, Thailand, with his GoPro running on the time lapse setting, according to The Daily Mail.

When the banana supply ran dry, the elephant reportedly grabbed the camera.

“I couldn’t believe it had happened, let alone taken the snap at the right moment,” the 22-year-old traveller told Metro News. "This is definitely hands down my most epic selfie."

According to his YouTube channel where he's documenting his travels, LeBlanc says he also plans to visit Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, and Indonesia.

Safe to say we'll be keeping an eye out for more delightful animal selfies while he's on the road.
