Robert Irwin — the son of the late crocodile hunter, Steve Irwin — saw his skills put to the test after he was chased by a croc while filming.
The 18-year-old was wrapping up the season finale of his series, “Crikey! It’s the Irwins,” at the Australia Zoo when a light-pigmented leucistic saltwater crocodile named Casper proceeded to take numerous lunges at Irwin as he attempted to coax the reptile out of its enclosure.
Irwin said in a three minute video shared to his Instagram that he was feeding Casper for the first time in the crocodile’s new habitat.
“If he’s coming out of the water giving big strikes that means he’s going to be ready for the Crocoseum show,” the reality star said.
