HOUSTON, TX – Selfie, Smelphie. Who hasn’t taken one?

It’s easy, turn the camera around and click. We’ve all done it. Webster even recently added the word “selfie” to the dictionary. Well hang on to your trunks, here’s comes the next big selfie sensation. Introducing the world’s first “elphie.”

Latabe the elephant snapped the world’s first wildlife selfie when 23-year-old selfie addict Scott Brierley dropped his phone while touring the West Midlands Safari Park near Worcestershire.

Latabe extended his trunk, touched the phone and voila, a new photo for the history books.

Wonder if the new craze will be animal’s taking self-pics or tourists purposely dropping their phones at the nearest zoo? In that case, that would be a ruffie. Take that Webster’s.
