Steve Irwin’s son appeared on a US talk show and he’s exactly like his father
Australian daredevil naturist Steve Irwin was beloved the world over. His show The Crocodile Hunter mixed up wildlife education with a sense of danger and excitement. He wasn’t afraid to get up close and personal with dangerous animals, and it was definitely a different show to what Sir David Attenborough and the BBC do. He even transferred that fame into a Hollywood movie The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course.
In September 2006, Irwin was tragically killed when he was stabbed in the heart by a string ray, while filming at Batt Reef, near Port Douglas, Queensland.
Irwin’s family recently unveiled a star for him on the Hollywood Walk of Fame – right next to Johnny Cash’s star.
His 14 year old son Robert went on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to mark the occasion – and he is exactly like his father. Obviously he looks like his father’s son, but he’s got the same manic energy, enthusiasm, and love for nature. He even brought along some furry friends - including a herd of baby African pygmy goats named after the cast of Friends, and Cookie the Kookaburra, that imitated rapper Cardi B.
Robert has made several appearances on Fallon’s show, usually bringing along something incredible cute with him.
