I get it, I really do. Your dad was a famous zoo-tv-entertainer guy and since he was beloved and tragically passed it is smart to ride that lightning and get into the family business.
That doesn’t mean you need to take it so literally, Robert!
The son of Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, shared a clip of him nearly getting fvcking attacked by a mother fvcking croc.
“The finale of ‘Crikey! It’s the Irwins’ is on now, 8pm in the USA so go check it out! We’ve definitely saved the best for last, including one of the most intense croc feeds I’ve done! We prioritise natural behaviour with our crocs. By getting in their enclosures with them, and letting them put on those huge strikes from the water’s edge, they get to use all of their predatory instincts and they just love it! Plus we can educate everyone about their conservation. But safety for us is also crucial and you definitely have to know when to call it. And with such a powerful and quick croc like Casper we had no choice but to bail!”
The clip he posted was taken from the season finale of the show, Crikey! It’s the Irwins.
If you didn’t push play, the three-minute clip started with Robert trying to feed the infamous crocodile ‘Casper’, housed in the Australia Zoo. The animal reportedly weighs almost 800 pounds, and is a rare white crocodile. Robert called him the “wildest crocodile in the zoo, and noted that he had just been moved to a new habitat where he was not necessarily comfortable yet.”
So naturally… the thing to do is try and feed an uncomfortable crocodile.
There are four seasons and five specials streaming now on Discovery+. There’s no word yet on whether the show will be back for another season… or if Robert plans to live that long.
