A Twitch clip involving two elephants on a road, with one of them sporting an elusive “fifth leg” has gone viral and viewers are in awe.

With Twitch allowing for more than just video games to be streamed on their platform, viewers really don’t know what they’re getting into on any given day.

The Just Chatting section of the platform has been growing rapidly, so it’s fair to say that a lot of viewers do go to Twitch to look at things other than video games – in this case, elephants.

Just Chatting is often near the very top of the Twitch directory.

Twitch channel “ourWildEarth” caught a glimpse of a couple of elephants blocking the path of their vehicle during a safari trip, which forced them to stop and start examining the two animals, explaining to the viewers what was going on.


“You can see that the male is in the front, which is the one that we saw just now mud wallowing on the road, and he’s now got his genitals out which makes him a 5-legged animal,” said the safari guide.

It’s no secret that elephants are blessed when it comes to their anatomy, but it’s not very often you see it on full display out in the wild or, indeed, on Twitch.

The streamer, on the other hand, is obviously a seasoned veteran when it comes to things of this nature as he was able to give the play-by-play without letting out even as much as a chuckle.


Obviously, the chat wasn’t used to this and reacted accordingly, with many “LUL” emotes being spammed.

Twitch chat had no idea what they were getting themselves into.

The elephant didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary other than just letting things hang, and it definitely had no idea chat was about to roast it.

As for the Twitch channel, ourWildEarth is sporting just under 5,000 followers at the time of writing while the clip has been viewed over 60,000 times, with viewers taking a liking to the well-endowed elephant.

If incidents like this keep on happening, we imagine that ourWildEarth’s following will absolutely skyrocket.
