Steve Irwin’s 13-Year-Old Son Robert Brings The Whole Array Of Exotic Animals To Jimmy Fallon's Show
“The Crocodile Hunter”, Steve Irwin, achieved international fame thanks to the world-famous wildlife documentary series with the same name, which he co-hosted with his wife Terri. He balanced his hosting job at other TV shows, such as Croc Files (1999–2001), The Crocodile Hunter Diaries (2002–2006), and New Breed Vets (2005) with Australia Zoo, which was founded by his parents north of Brisbane. Steve's untimely passing in 2006 was caused by being pierced in the chest by a stingray while shooting for the documentary Ocean's Deadliest.
However, Irwin’s 13-year-old son Robert follows his famous father’s example! He appeared on ‘The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon’, accompanied by an array of exotic animals!
The TV host was apparently terrified by a python, while he enjoyed the interaction with a sloth, hugging the cute animal. But when Jimmy tried to let go, it wasn’t that easy! Apparently, sloths are too amicable.
Among other visitors, Jimmy welcomed a couple of curious leopard cubs, a porcupine, and an anteater.
Being on the same show, where his late father also appeared, was symbolic for Robert. He said:
My dad was actually on this night show quite a while ago, so it’s really nice to be able to follow in his footsteps. It’s really great.
