Robert Irwin Remembers His Dad And Introduces Jimmy Fallon To Some Interesting Animals

Including goats named after "Friends" characters.

Steve Irwin's 14-year-old son Robert Irwin continues to follow in his late father's footsteps, this time returning to The Tonight Show to show host Jimmy Fallon more amazing animals. From his first appearance on the show last year, it was clear that Robert shared his dad's passion for wildlife, and his enthusiasm hasn't faded.

Before bringing out the animals, Robert spoke about his father's posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, noting that it's right next to Johnny Cash, his dad's "favorite artist." As he recalled, "Whenever we'd go camping, Dad would sit by the fire and sing Johnny Cash. That was his thing, so it's really, really special."


Robert went on to introduce Fallon to some baby pygmy goats — six to be exact, and all named after Friends characters. After that, they spent time with a kookaburra, who promptly left a present on the stage carpet. Robert called kookaburras his "alarm clock" in Australia, comparing the noise they make to none other than Cardi B

There was a special moment toward the end of the segment, when Robert welcomed his mother Terri Irwin and his older sister, 19-year-old Bindi Irwin, to help him handle an alligator. Fallon was shocked when Robert gave the creature a kiss on the head, but he quickly gathered his courage and planted a smooch of his own.
