11 Pics Comparing Father And Son Irwins That Prove The Apple Does Not Fall Far From The Tree

The late great Steve Irwin, known famously as the ‘Crocodile Hunter’, passed away almost 13 years ago – but his legacy lives on in his son Robert Irwin. At only 15-years-old the young wildlife enthusiast has proven he is just as adventurous and passionate about wildlife as his father was.

Working alongside his mother Terri and older sister Bindi, 20, at the Australia Zoo, he is an animal expert and TV personality, who continues to spread his father’s important messages about wildlife conservation through entertainment. Recently he once again reminded the world just how similar he and his dad are by recreating a famous image of the ‘Crocodile Hunter’ at the zoo.

Robert is only 15 years old at this time, but already exactly like his dad. Very intelligent, very, very passionate about animals. I recommend watching Roberts moments on Jimmy Fallon's show, where Robert scares Jimmy with all kinds of animals, while still being very passionate about it.

It's too late to leave them alone! We already messed up their environment. The least we can do is try to fix as much as we can before it's too late. You can't help animals without studying them. You can't help animals without making the general public care.

They’re like Australia royalty. They seem so genuine as well. I feel like trying to explain the impact of his father on us as children is hard to explain to people

Nope, I completely agree with Krystine - most Australians regarded him as a complete dickhead and a huckster. Also, his approach to animals was completely disrespectful and adolescent.
