Australian television personality and wildlife expert Steve Irwin lost his life at a young age of 44 as he left his family behind. His son Robert Irwin, who was only 3-years-old when he died, had already spent a lot of time learning what he did for a living. The little boy, just like his father, had immense love for nature and animals. The young boy could have done anything, but he chose to ‘follow his father’s footsteps to honor his legacy’. 

Aside from appearing on wildlife channels, Robert spends a lot of time traveling the world photographing animals and you’ll be amazed to see his work. 

Robert participated and was the runner up in Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year competition in the junior category last year.

Just like his father, Robert is super attached to animals.

Always so much fun to spend time with our beautiful animals @australiazoo like Jenny the Burmese python! 🐍

And why won’t he be? The kid has been around them since he was a toddler. This is Robert with the same Burmese Python when he was a few months old. Brave kid!

#Flashback to one of my first snake experiences, with Jenny the burmese python when I was only a few months old!🐍
