Looks like the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree when it came Steve And Robert Irwin. The 18-year-old recently posted some videos on his TikTok account showing him rescuing a giant snake from the middle of the street without fear.
Irwin ‘Wrangles’ snake he found in the street
The first video shows Irwin confronting a snake while driving. “Look at you, man!” He said he would have to look more closely after getting out of the car. “How are you?” He then puts his phone on the ground and addresses his followers: “Let’s fight him.”
Irwin picks up the snake without hesitation, letting it spin in his arms. “She’s in a very, very bad position,” Irwin tells the camera. “He’s on a street – he’s at the Australian Zoo, it’s at the zoo – and he has a crook next to him and he has an aviary full of birds. He’s either going to eat or he’s going to eat one of our animals.”
“All I’m going to do is pop him in a small bag, and then I’ll take him to a beautiful, natural bush to give him a better chance at life,” he continued. . “And also, make sure he doesn’t eat any of the zoo’s residents.”
Irwin continued to show the snake, indicating how it was “shrinking” around his arm and showing viewers a pattern of scales on his abdomen. In a follow-up video, Irwin leaves for Bushland the next day.
The snake is being released with Mother Terry
He told his followers how he was going to release the snake, then came to the camera and said, “But before we do that, I’m going to make sure my mom is actually filming.” The next shot is of his mother, Terry, whom Irwin calls his “camera operator for the day.”
Irwin pulls the snake out of the bag and says, “You’re home!” He then turned to the camera and said, “I think he’s a little upset that he can’t eat any of our birds, but other than that, I think he’s pretty happy.”
He let go of the snake and it quickly fell into the water and swam away. “Awesome,” says Irwin, clenching his fist. With parents like Steve and Terry, Irwin has nothing to fear when it comes to handling dangerous animals.
