Kim Kardashian received a rude awakening when she was attacked by an elephant during her recent trip to Thailand when trying to take a selfie with the animal, who was clearly camera shy.

The hilarious scenes have already begun to cause a Twitter storm with GIFs and memes recreating the moment the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star ran for her life after a grumpy elephant tried to grab her hair.

The social media goddess was seen pouting for her mobile phone camera as she stood next to the wild animal hoping to post the picture on Twitter, but unsurprisngly the elephant was startled by the flash and began charging towards her.

Kim was in no real danger, but was so shocked by the animal's sudden reaction she made a quick dash, while her mother Kris Jenner looked on in amusement.

The 32-year-old reality star has been holidaying in Phuket with her family including sisters Kylie, Kendall and her step-brother Brody Jenner while the clan are filming episodes for the latest season of their E! reality series.

Kim seems to be enjoying the sunshine and saw the vacation as the prime time to show off her toned bikini body on Phang-Nga Beach.

After losing 50 pounds since the birth of her daughter North West last June, Kim flaunted the results of her hard work in a skimpy bikini as she posed on a speed boat.
