The son of the late animal enthusiast Steve Irwin appeared on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, and got tongues wagging due to his uncanny resemblance to his father. Robert Irwin showed all the enthusiasm of his dad as he exhibited a dwarf crocodile, an armadillo, a sloth and a snake on stage with Fallon. Robert, who works at the Irwin family’s Australia Zoo, is a keen wildlife photographer. He was on the show to introduce the animals to a nervous looking Fallon.
Robert’s sister Bindi, who is also a keen naturist like her father, took to Instagram to praise her brother, sharing a picture of Robert and Fallon alongside a similar one of Steve and Jay Leno. The 18 year old wrote, “Tears in my eyes. So proud of @robertirwinphotography ❤️ You are more and more like Dad every day. I’m forever thankful to be your sister.”
Proud beyond words of @robertirwinphotography because TONIGHT he is going to be on Jimmy Fallon talking about all things wildlife and conservation! Check out The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and don't forget to comment below to wish my incredible brother good luck ❤️🐊 So proud. I love you, Robert!
Bindi and Robert, who are extremely close, have very much followed in the footsteps of their late father. The pair have all the passion of their dad, and are keen to continue the family legacy.
