He said "it's in my blood", adding: "I am the luckiest kid on the planet".
In an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on February 17, Robert introduced Jimmy to some of the animals from the Australia Zoo - a dwarf crocodile, an armadillo, a red-tailed boa, and two sloths. He will be accompanied with his mom, Terri, and older sister, Bindi.
"My dad was actually on The Tonight Show quite a while ago and its really nice to be able to follow in his footsteps", he said. "You're actually your dad". "Tears in my eyes", the "Dancing with the Stars" victor wrote. While the photo of Schultz was up on screen, plume of cold breath on display, Fallon wrote a thank you note to cold weather, "for making it look like like I'm constantly vaping".
Watch the entire adorable segment below... His family, including daughter Bindi, has continued to advocate for wildlife conservation.
Of course, Robert brought with him a host of exotic animals to meet Jimmy, most of which the talk show host was initially scared to get close to.
Instagram is just one way that Irwin's children are bringing a love of animals to the world. The gala raises money for the late wildlife expert's organisation Wildlife Warriors. Hopefully they will appear on television, sloths in tow, again soon.
