Pokimane panics as Fedmyster drops massive tarantula at her feet

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys decided to mix things up for one of her latest Twitch streams, taking viewers to the zoo for the day, and they got a lot more than they bargained for when they visited the tarantula section. 

The popular Twitch streamer has built up an incredible following on social media platforms, reaching a landmark 4 million followers on Instagram and the same amount of subscribers on YouTube on October 7. 

Since then, she has continued to create content for both, as well as hosting some hilarious IRL (in real life) live streams for her fans to enjoy on Twitch – and her October 22 broadcast was no different. 

Pokimane TwitchPokimane was a little creeped out by some of the animals during the stream.

The 23-year-old was walking around the zoo with fellow popular internet personality Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan, and for the large part viewers were enjoying seeing the different animals on show, including parrots, snakes and more. 

However, it was a moment with the tarantulas that caught most people off guard, after the huge spider scared off Fed almost right away. After leaving the room for a few moments, he finally returned and agreed to hold it in his hands, before something completely unexpected happened. 

The tarantula walked across his and the instructor’s hands for a second, before leaping out of his grasp and running around on the floor – right next to Pokimane’s feet – and neither of them knew what to do. It was picked up soon after. 

As we mentioned earlier, this wasn’t the only animal to be shown off during the broadcast. In fact, there was even another wholesome moment where Poki allowed a small constrictor snake to wrap around her shoulders, which seemed to make her react in an odd way. 

For those who aren’t aware, constrictors wrap around their pray and squeeze it until it’s killed. “Oh my god, it started moving behind my neck and I started sweating. Like, I’m having a workout right now,” she said. 

Whether or not these two streamers will return to the zoo, or feature more animals in their streams, in the near future remains to be seen, but there’s no doubt that it made for some interesting moments.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left in awe after Sykkuno managed to shoot him dead on the OTV Rust server, and it was safe to say he was impressed by the streamer’s aim, saying “you killed me, you’re amazing!”

The Offline TV Rust sever has been a huge talking point since the start of this year, as with the enormous host of streamers participating there are endless amounts of content for fans to consume on the daily.

The server even ended up needing to be split into two after people’s varying playstyles caused some tension and calls for a need to separate PVP-focused players and roleplay-focused players.

While it was originally released in 2013, Rust has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the OTV server.

However, that’s not to say that there haven’t been plenty of iconic moments between streamers, as even though the game can get pretty violent, the vast range of streamer interactions has led to some great scenes for fans.

That was the case for Sykkuno fans when he managed to kill shroud, leaving everyone impressed with his skills.

While they were competing for the Oil Rig, Sykkuno managed to get shroud with his gun as he jumped, and it didn’t seem like shroud expected it at all, dying with a bewildered “no, Sykkuno!”

Sykkuno’s hand immediately flew to his mouth, laughing and apologizing for the abrupt kill.

Michael sounded equally as impressed as he did betrayed, after a few seconds of silence saying “Sykkuno you killed me, you’re amazing!” But the compliments didn’t end there, with Micheal adding, “you destroyed me!” and even “you’re the better gamer, man” to which Sykkuno replied, “no, no, most definitely not.”

Sykkuno has talked previously about how he’s a “humongous fan of shroud” in the past, so this interaction definitely proved to be a positive one for the rising streamer.

One fan on Twitter said, “Sykkuno downed shroud and even shroud is proud of him,” another saying “that Sykkuno/shroud friendly PVP was beautiful to watch… what in the wholesome rivalry.”

The PVP moment was definitely an entertaining one all round, and while the results were unexpected, no one was more impressed than shroud himself.
