Robert Irwin, son of Steve Irwin, 'The Crocodile Hunter', recreated an image of his father in which he was photographed feeding Australia Zoo's most dangerous crocodile, Murray.

Robert, in similar brown overalls as Steve, shared the image which promptly broke the internet, captioning it as "Dad and me feeding Murray... same place, same croc - two photos 15 years apart."

Robert, who is soon to have his Animal Planet show titled Crikey!, spoke to Daily Mail about his passion for wildlife, stating that he would love to continue in this profession for the rest of his life. "I think for me, the wildlife work that I get to do, it's what I live for. It's what I love, it's my passion, it's what dad was passionate about, it's what my family is passionate about. It's something that I definitely want to continue for the rest of my life, it's what I've dedicated my life to," Robert added.

Apart from Robert, Terri and Steve also have a 20-year-old daughter, Bindi Irwin.

Bearing an uncanny resemblance to Steve, Robert has followed his father's path to become an active wildlife conservationist who has already appeared multiple times in celebrity talk show The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
