Kim Kardashian was recently left startled while attempting to take one of her trademark selfies with an elephant in Thailand.


The unsuspecting reality TV star, 33, posed wearing a black bikini and an ear-to-ear grin while standing before the elephant. As she positioned an iPhone to find the perfect angle, her four-legged-friend blew air out of its trunk and onto her neatly groomed hair, prompting her to flee in horror.

Kardashian's mother Kris Jenner, 58, was seen watching on and giggling at the failed selfie attempt. The Kardashian-Jenner family is currently enjoying a family holiday in Southeast Asia where they are filming scenes for the upcoming season of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."

Kardashian and her sisters Khloe, Kendall and Kylie have shared a series of impressive selfies in recent days via social networking site Instagram. The E! TV family have been frolicking on Phang-Nga Beach in Phuket, visiting local temples, enjoying zip-lining adventures, boating trips and even visited a local orphanage during their time away.

Jenner's estranged husband Bruce, 63, is also along for the fun, however, Kourtney and her boyfriend Scott Disick remained in California.

The trip will likely mark the family's last overseas expedition together before Kardashian's upcoming wedding to Kanye West.

The rapper, 36, proposed to the E! star in October and they are set to wed in a lavish ceremony in Paris on May 24.

Insiders claim an E! camera crew will be present to capture every moment of the wedding, much like during Kardashian's 2011 wedding to NBA star Kris Humphries. The wedding will mark the reality star's third marriage and West's first.

Kardashian recently opened up about her big day insisting that contrary to media reports, the event will not be over-the-top.

"We're having a super, super small, intimate wedding. As we go along, we're realizing we want it to be smaller and more intimate than people are imagining and thinking," Kardashian told Seacrest on his KIIS FM radio show on Feb. 25.
