Like father, like son! Robert Irwin lets a green tree snake coil around his face in creepy TikTok video


He resembles his late dad Steve Irwin more and more every day.

And last weekend, Robert Irwin took a page out of his father’s book as he shared a video to Tiktok with a snake coiled around his face. 

‘G’day guys, how’s it goin?’ the 17-year-old Wildlife Warrior says in the clip. ‘I’ve made a little friend here on my evening skateboard around Australia Zoo.’

‘This guy here is a green tree snake,’ he continued, directing the camera towards the snake’s head. ‘They’re quite a common species here on the Sunshine Coast, where we are at the Zoo.’ 

Robert revealed that the snake did not actually come from the Zoo and was in fact a wild snake he found. 

‘I thought I’d drop by and say g’day, and he’s decided my head is a tree, apparently,’ he joked.

‘So, he’s coiled around my hand and my head and he’s found a good little spot. They are quite common, but they’re a really special species.’

The Wildlife Warrior then provided more intricate details about the snake, like his father would when he showcased an animal to viewers.

Robert stated that green tree snakes consumed frogs and stick their tongues out to smell the surrounding area for food and predators.

‘He’s pretty happy here, isn’t he?’ he added. ‘Well, there ya go. He’s got me trapped.’

‘He’s got my hand all wrapped around, he’s constricting my head, so we’ll see how we go. Isn’t he cute?’ 

Earlier this month, Robert undertook Australia Zoo’s annual crocodile research trip at the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve.

The young animal handler was the spitting image of his father as he tells the camera that he wants to catch and study crocodiles. 

‘The more we can learn about them, the more we can do to protect them,’ he stated in the clip. 

Followers were quick to point out Robert’s resemblance to Steve, with one saying, ‘I was a huge fan of your dad and I can see so much of him in you.’

Robert was just two years old when his father was killed by a stingray barb to the heart while filming a wildlife documentary on the Great Barrier Reef in 2006.
