Robert Irwin, son of “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, exhibiting enthusiasm towards wildlife, similar to his father.
Wearing khaki shirt and shorts, Robert definitely seem to follow his father’s footsteps as he introduced animals — such as African dwarf crocodile Beetlejuice, armadillo Mickey, red-tailed boa Lady, and sloths Valentino and Serenity — to host Jimmy Fallon.
Fallon mentioned that Robert is just like his father, saying, “It’s so cool to see you like this, you’re actually your Dad.”
The host praised the enthusiasm of the young Irwin towards wildlife.
“It’s just in my blood,” Robert responded.
“I’ve actually grown up at Australian zoos, so I think I’m the luckiest kid on planet Earth,” he cheerfully added.
