Steve Irwins son Robert channels dad with eerie identical mannerisms

Robert Irwin has left fans stunned after looking like the double of his late father Steve Irwin.

The 17-year-old appeared on Channel Severn in Australia to talk about his role at Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

Dressed in a traditional light brown shorts and shirt uniform, Robert used the same mannerisms as his late father.

Rob was just two years old when his Crocodile Hunter father tragically lost his life in 2006.

Steve had been filming a documentary when he was pierced by a stingray in the chest.

He was just 44-years-old.

Rob seems keen to follow in his father's conversation footsteps when it comes to Australian wildlife.=

Holding a young alligator, Rob told TV host Sam Mac: "I just love them so much. Do you want to hold him?

"You realise just how special they are.

"You see their cute little feet, soft little tummies.

"They are just beautiful, aren't they?"

At the end of 2020 Rob took to social media to share a tribute video to his late father.

In the clip his colleagues at Australia Zoo could be seen preparing for Rob's birthday.

Admitting he hopes his father would be proud of his work, Rob captioned the clip: "Our lovely Australia Zoo crew made this beautiful video to celebrate my birthday, and it means the world to me.

"I am beyond honoured to continue my dad's legacy and I hope more than anything that he would be proud."

Steve had previously spoken about hoping his children would carry on his work.

He said after Rob's birth: "When Bindi was born, I had the same sensation now with little Bob… it's like this is why I was put here, because I could be dead tomorrow.

"So I need these blokes to come up as quick as they can.

"This little bloke's going to have to catch the crocs with Bindi.

"When they're ready to run up our mission, I will gladly step aside. Then and only then will I know that I achieved my ultimate goal.

"And my job will be done, and I guarantee you, it will be the proudest moment of my life."

After his death both Bindi, Rob and their mother Terri have continued Steve's work.
