However, he apparently then dropped his phone while in the elephant enclosure.

2. The 23-year-old claims he was told to stay inside his car and was therefore unable to retrieve it.

3. When he was eventually reunited with his phone, Brierley was surprised to find a picture of 22-year-old elephant Latabe.

“I really couldn’t believe when the phone came back, I pressed the centre button to check it was still working and there it was – me and my friend were in shock,” he said.

4. Head keeper Andy Plumb said the “elfie” (elephant selfie) was a first for the park.

“Lots of people have dropped their phones at our park but I’ve never seen anything like this,” he said.
