The son of the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, 14-year-old Robert Irwin, has taken over his father's legacy teaching the world about amazing animals. Irwin stopped by The Tonight Show on Thursday night to show host Jimmy Fallon some unique creatures.
In addition to his own Australian TV show, Robert’s Real Life Adventures, the youngest Irwin has appeared with Fallon six times.
They eased into the segment by feeding peanut butter and jelly to a beaver, but things quickly escalated when Irwin brought out a tarantula.
Fallon was not particularly excited about the spider.
One this is for sure: the younger Irwin shares his father's knowledge and enthusiasm for all the creatures of the world, and it's infectious!

People loved seeing Robert carrying on the family tradition.
Love seeing you follow through on everything your Dad held so close to his heart. Cheers and Happy Australia Day— Gary Skoogh (@GazSko) January 26, 2018
The physical resemblance between father and son did not go unnoticed.
It's hard not to smile with all that positive energy.
People appreciate the joy Irwin brings to his work.
Thank you for having this boy on your show at ANY time because his smile, enthusiasm for animals, and pureness makes my heart happy. He is one of the only things that makes me smile nowadays. Thank You! ❤— jacquelineconde (@jackie95conde) January 26, 2018
We think it's pretty awesome too.
