Steve Irwin’s Son Robert Continues Legacy on The Tonight Show

No one will ever be able to replace the charismatic “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin but his children Bindi Irwin and Robert Irwin have certainly done an excellent job carrying his legacy.  Bindi Irwin made waves when she appeared and won on Dancing with the Stars.  Now the torch is apparently being passed to young 13-year-old Robert Irwin who had a chance to stop by The Tonight Show and teach Jimmy Fallon how to cuddle a sloth.  In Robert’s solo debut on television Fallon gave him much praise.

“It’s so cool to see you like this,” the host told the teen. “You’re actually your dad.” While Robert is not quite the famous “crocodile hunter,” he is following in his footsteps in the wildlife department. One by one, Robert introduced Fallon to a handful of his favorite creatures, including an African dwarf crocodile, a screaming armadillo and Lady, the red-tailed boa constrictor.

As far as Robert’s feelings about being on the show:

“My dad was actually on The Tonight Show quite a while ago and its really nice to be able to follow in his footsteps,” he told Fallon.  His sister Bindi Irwin was equally thrilled about her little brother’s appearance. “Tears in my eyes. So proud of @robertirwinphotography,” the Dancing With the Stars winner wrote on Instagram.
