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.

Smash Melee star Ludwig Ahgren sent a Pokemon card Twitch stream into a meltdown when he pulled a 1st Edition Dragonite worth up to $10k. The gaming pro scored the rare collectible after streamer Trainwreckstv gave him the pack.

Pokemon cards have taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch as viewers flock to see their favorite personalities chase after the rarest Nintendo collectibles.

A live Trading Card Game box opening hosted by streamer Mizkif and his org One True King went off the rails on November 22 when Smash pro Ludwig scored a rare Dragonite that could have been Trainwrecks’.

Ludwig scores rare Pokemon card from 1999

The Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded for nothing on school playgrounds decades ago can now sell for as much as a house. The hobby has also become a major hit on sites like Twitch, with streamers buying sealed booster boxes from the 90s to open live for viewers.

On November 22, Twitch star Mizkif broke open 1st Edition sealed packs from the 1999 Fossil set. Those attending the event lost their minds when pro gamer Ludwig scored a 1st Edition Dragonite after streamer Trainwreckstv gave his pack to him.

The moment went viral due to the Twitch personality’s generosity backfiring. “Dude I swear to God if I said no to this pack to be fair and nice and its a good pack I want it back. Ludgwig, if this is good it’s my pack. If it’s bad, it’s your pack,” he exclaimed moments before the card was pulled. Unfortunately, the booster he passed on contained the exact rare holographic he was chasing after.

After the excitement settled, the group felt bad for Train’s incredibly bad luck. Although the popular Twitch star wasn’t too bitter about it, laughing it off on Twitter. If nothing else, he should be applauded for his generosity.

According to recent sales of the item, a 1st Edition Dragonite can sell anywhere from $8k to 9.7k depending on the grading. Luckily for Ludwig, the item looked incredibly pristine, giving him a good chance at a PSA 10 grading.
