Kim Kardashian Narrowly Avoids Elephant 'Attack' While Taking Selfie

Kim Kardashian has learned the hard way what happens when you turn your back on an elephant.

The 33-year-old's attempt to take a selfie with a baby elephant went slightly awry on Monday, March 31, and sent the reality star running. While Kim's sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, made friends with the adorable creature during their bikini'd photo shoot in Thailand, Kardashian's interaction didn't go quite as smoothly.

The reality star narrowly avoided being attacked (or more likely just nuzzled) by the elephant as he raised his trunk and blew air into Kardashian's hair, according to Us Weekly.

The look on Kardashian's face as she ran from the elephant is priceless, and even her mother, Kris Jenner, couldn't resist poking fun at her daughter for scaring so easily. Jenner posted the photos from the incident to her Instagram account, writing, "Ahahahahah @kimkardashian #scaredycat #hesjustababykim."
