The ever-wise elephant is technologically savvy, too, apparently.

Christian LeBlanc, 22, discovered this while studying abroad in Thailand two months ago. He and his girlfriend were on Koh Phangan Island when they "came across a couple of elephants." They fed the lot of animals with a 50-cent basket of bananas, he said, but the elephants wanted more food.

After getting "touchy" trying to find more food, the elephant eventually got a hold of LeBlanc's GoPro, which was still shooting.

Although LeBlanc said he can't officially take credit for the photo (that belongs to the elephant), he did say, "The result was world's first ever 'Elphie.'"
