Robert Irwin's Likeness To Dad Steve Irwin Will Make You Say 'Crikey!'

Like Crocodile Hunter, like son.

We think we’ve seen celebrity look-alikes before, but Steve Irwin’s son is here to (croco)dial it up to 11.

While Robert Irwin appeared on “The Tonight Show” on Thursday, Jimmy Fallon broke out a side-by-side picture of him and his dad as a kid, and it’s enough to make you say, “Crikey!”

Crikey! It's Robert Irwin and Steve Irwin!

”I thought it was me,” said the young Irwin. Apparently he couldn’t even tell the difference before looking at his dad’s shirt in the picture. 

“You’re like, ‘I wouldn’t wear that,’” joked Fallon.

It’s been more than a decade now since Steve Irwin, known for his show “The Crocodile Hunter,” tragically lost his life. His daughter Bindi Irwin previously told HuffPost that in that time, the whole family has been working to keep his spirit of animal conservation alive.

“Well, for us as a family, it’s a team effort. I think we have tried so hard to make sure everything he lived and died for carries on. My dad always used to say, ‘I don’t care if anyone remembers me. I just want people to remember my message,’” she said.

Following in his dad’s footsteps, Robert brought some animals, too, and we just can’t bear it (because there are bears).

”The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on NBC.
