His late father was known the world over as The Crocodile Hunter.
And 13-year-old Robert Irwin seems to be following in his dad Steve's footsteps, getting up close and personal with all kinds of exotic animals.
The Australian teen looked strikingly similar to his father, as he appeared in his late-night debut on Thursday's episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
An unconventional guest! Robert Irwin appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Thursday, bringing along a red tail boa constrictor, much to the terror of the host
The Queensland-based brother of Bindi Irwin also shared his famous father's enthusiasm, telling the American comedian about his love for creatures great and small.
Dressed in a khaki uniform, Robert then introduced a terrified Jimmy to a number of animals.
First up, was a baby African Dwarf crocodile named Beetlejuice.
A tepid touch: Jimmy didn't seem too keen to cosy up with a crocodile by the name of Beetlejuice
'Would you like to give him a pat?' Robert asked a reluctant Jimmy, who only gave the reptile a tepid touch.
Jimmy seemed slightly less panicked by the next animal, a screaming armadillo by the name of Mickey.

Sheer terror! Jimmy has no doubt encountered some difficult guests on his program, but it's unlikely any have caused him as much terror as the giant boa constrictor named Lady
But then came a giant boa constrictor, who Robert revealed went by the name of Lady.
'She's so cute,' assured the young animal enthusiast, to which Jimmy replied, 'No, they trick you with the names and it's like an evil thing.'
When the massive snake was brought out on stage Robert asked the comedian if he would like to have a hold.
'She's trying to kill me!'Two assistants had to rush on stage and untie the large reptile from the star
'No!' Jimmy replied, before the reptile was thrust across his arms anyway.
The giant snake then began to constrict around the comedian's arm as he yelped, 'She's trying to kill me!'
Lady then began to wrap around Robert's waist before two assistants had to come and remove the animal.
Steve's mini-me: Enthusiastic Robert was reminiscent of his late father as he introduced Jimmy to the animals
The funnyman was much more of a fan of the final animal- a sloth named Valentino.
And despite the terror, it appeared Jimmy enjoyed Robert's first visit to the studio.
'I love this, I love you. Thank you for bring all these fun animals and, gosh, what a treat, man!' Jimmy said as he wrapped the segment.
Like father, like son: Robert is just thirteen but already showing the same enthusiasm as his dad
