Kim Kardashian chased away from a selfie? Say it ain't so!

Who's afraid of a little elephant? Kim Kardashian, that's who. 

The reality-TV star has been touring Southeast Asia with her family, taping for "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and of course posting pics of their exploits. A couple of shots even have Kim dressing demurely -- shoulders covered, longer skirt, no exploding cleavage -- as she visits a temple.

But it was a baby elephant who got the best of the fame queen Friday in Thailand. She was trying to take a selfie with the critter when it moved toward her, blowing at her hair through its trunk and completely freaking her out. Those pics are not available on Twitter or Instagram, but can be seen in the video above.

Score one for the pachyderm, 'cause it's rare that any Kardashian runs away from a photo op.

Not shying away from the camera was sister Kendall Jenner, who on Monday posted a snap of "just me and my coconut." And that caption was no lie. There's a lot of backside on display in this bikini shot
