Robert Irwin is following in his dad’s footsteps and it’s great.

13 years ago, we lost one of the most loveable men to grace the television in Steve Irwin, when his life was tragically cut short after a stingray attack.

He left behind a legacy that few others could ever hope to, introducing young people to the wonders of nature and more than most, his own two children, Bindi and Robert.

20-year-old Bindi is a bit of a jack of all trades, working as an actress, television personality, conservationist, model, singer and dancer, while 15-year-old Robert sticks mainly to TV, every now and then making an appearance at Australia Zoo.

It’s the latter who seems most like his father, and it’s fair to say that these pictures prove the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…

It’s amazing how things work at and it goes without saying that Robert’s dad would be dangerously proud of him.

Chip off the old block, eh?

Good on you, Robert. If you can do have of the job your dad did, getting children interested in the world around them, then you’ve done something amazing.
