Out of the Steve Irwin clan, the focus has been primarily on his daughter Bindi over the last couple of years — especially after the little ray of sunshine won us all over with her fabulous performances on Dancing With the Stars.
However, now it appears the spotlight has somewhat shifted onto Irwin's other offspring, Robert, who also shares a beautiful passion for conservation with his late father. The 13-year-old recently appeared with a few animals — including a dwarf croc, an armadillo, a sloth and a large boa — with talk show host Jimmy Fallon and it was as epic as you imagine.
His sister Bindi posted the following side-by-side image on her Instagram:

Pulling on the classic khaki Crocodile Hunter look his naturalist dad once wore, Robert looked every bit like his legendary father and referred to himself as the "luckiest kid" in the world for being able to grow up at Australia Zoo. And even his sister, #BindiIrwin, was quick to pick up on the similarities between her brother and her Pa, saying in her post:
"You are more and more like Dad every day."
#SteveIrwin died in 2006 at the young age of 44 after he was stung by a stingray while filming a nature documentary on the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Australia.
And although Robert may have been just 2-years-old at the time of the incident, it's wonderful to see him following in his father's footsteps in trying to make this world a better place for all creatures. Watch The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon clip below:
