An African elephant was caught on camera trying to cop a feel of bikini-clad Playboy model Francia James, who was visiting the Myrtle Beach Safari petting zoo in South Carolina.
The frisky footage shows James approaching the female pachyderm, named Bubbles, in a barely-there string bikini.
As she attempts to pet the 9,000-pound animal, a trunk can be seen wandering around the woman’s torso — apparently sniffing her out.
James laughs awkwardly as she attempts to divert the elephant’s snorting schnoz.
“The trunk felt just like a large man’s hand with a high-powered vacuum attached!,” the scantily clad viral sensation says.
Meanwhile, the Myrtle Beach Safari website says 34-year-old Bubbles was rescued more than 30 years ago, after her herd was murdered by poachers for their priceless ivory tusks.
Some thought it was a pretty smooth move on Bubbles’ part, but others are calling the stunt “silly” and “fake.”
As one animal lover wrote, “I don’t understand why you have to film animals to promote your body.”
James has since changed her popular Instagram account to a “private” setting.
