Bindi and Robert Irwin, the children of the late Steve Irwin, both continue their father’s legacy. Like their father, they are equally committed to protecting Australia’s biodiversity and its varied species.
But there are more parallels than that… When his father once had a similar encounter, young Robert Irwin captured it on camera.
In addition to sharing his late father’s appearance, Robert Irwin has also adopted many of his traits, including his work choice. The late wildlife warrior recently shared another eerily connection between the two guys on Instagram, which he could have done without.
Young Robert Irwin uploaded an old footage of his late father’s face being bit by a python snake on Thursday. The teenage snake handler subsequently posted a video of himself handling the same snake and suffering multiple bites on his nose and eyebrow.
“Déjà vu. Years apart, my father and I were both bitten by carpet pythons, Robert noted in the caption of the video. As you can see, sometimes attempts to save snakes don’t quite work out as planned. I found this python on the side of the road.
Both men, who are animal lovers, bravely accepted the bites. Robert handled the rescue with the same composure Steve did before attending to his wounds. I went a little too close, so he gave me a bite, he said in the video, according to him. They have very sharp teeth that resemble tiny needles. Here is a link to the video.
Terri Irwin, the late Steve Irwin’s wife, and his two children, Robert and Bindi Irwin, are continuing his work at the Australia Zoo to conserve animals.
Steve Irwin passed away in 2006 at the age of 44. While filming at the Great Barrier Reef, a stingray stung him. Robert Irwin was just a toddler when his father passed away.
Robert paid tribute to his father in September of last year on both Father’s Day in Australia and the anniversary of his passing. In a post, he stated, “I am extending my love to those who are missing their dad today as it is Father’s Day in Australia today. I am pleased to be able to preserve my dad’s memory and legacy and I treasure all of our happy memories together.
Robert Irwin, like his late father, has developed into a beautiful adult. Steve would be pleased with his son right now for the effort he is doing to honor his memory. To make someone smile, send this article to other Steve Irwin and his family admirers.
