Steve Irwin's son Robert looks just like the late Crocodile Hunter


Robert Irwin, the 16-year-old son of late zookeeper and TV personality Steve Irwin, looks just like his dad in a new photo. 

In an Instagram post shared Tuesday, Robert is seen cuddling a koala, wearing his family’s signature khaki. He captioned the photo with heart and koala emojis. 

His followers were quick to point out that the shot made him look especially like Steve, who died in 2006 at age 44 from a stingray attack while working on the underwater film “Ocean’s Deadliest.” In a series of sweet comments, fans noted the likeness and sent their well-wishes to his family.

“You look so much like your dad in this picture,” @pvhammer wrote with a heart emoji. “You and your family are wonderful!”

“You have never looked more like your father than you do in this picture,” commented @breanana. “And your smile radiates that.” 

“Spitting image of Steve,” wrote @lindsay_anderson. 

“I had to do a double take I thought this was an old picture of your dad for a minute,” echoed @kodee_lpn. “You look so much like him. I know he is so proud of you, the rest of the world sure is!”

This isn’t the first time Robert has channeled his Crocodile Hunter dad. In another Instagram post last summer, he was photographed feeding a crocodile with a side-by-side photo of Steve doing so the same way. 

“Dad and me feeding Murray,” Robert captioned a side-by-side comparison of himself and his famous father feeding the large reptile. “Same place, same croc — two photos 15 years apart ❤️”

The Irwin family, Robert, his older sister, Bindi, and their mom, Terri, has continued Steve’s legacy in the animal kingdom, working at the Australia Zoo and starring in the Animal Planet series “Crikey! It’s the Irwins.”

Bindi, 21, also recently celebrated an exciting milestone: She and her longtime boyfriend, Chandler Powell, got engaged last summer on her birthday. She spent the day at her favorite place, the Australia Zoo, when Powell proposed.
