Robert Irwin (Author of The Dinosaur Feather)Robert Irwin is the spitting image of his dad Steve Irwin. But whereas Steve gained notoriety as The Crocodile Hunter, Roberts moniker of choice is The Dinosaur Hunter, and his book series, the first of which features Australias unique dinosaur heritage, tells you why.
Robert is a chip off the old block, and with his cheeky grin and natural curiosity, he loves nothing more than catching lizards and skinks, learning about wildlife and the Australian bush, and hanging out with his much-loved sister, Bindi. His hobbies include mountain biking, palaeontology and photography.
Like his mum and sister, Robert has also been quite the jetsetter and travelled all over the world attending special events like the Emmys and the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards as well as many trips to incredible natural locations to explore environments and wildlife around the world.
Robert travelled to South Africa in 2009 for an exciting filming project, making his cameo appearance, alongside star sister Bindi in the full-length feature film Free Willy: Escape from Pirates Cove.
Both Wildlife Warriors, Bindi and Robert received the Biggest Greenies award at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in 2009, dedicating it to their dad Steve and the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve (SIWR) in Cape York. This was topped off by their induction into the Hall of Slime in 2011.

Sign the petition: Stop the Harvesting of Crocodile Eggs. At just 9 years of age, Robert Irwin is the spitting image of his dad. But whereas Steve gained notoriety as The Crocodile Hunter , Robert's moniker of choice is The Dinosaur Hunter , and his new book series, the first of which features Australia's unique dinosaur heritage, tells you why. He's crazy about them, he's knowledgeable about them and he's travelled the world looking for them - well, their fossilised remains, that is! He's also amassed an extensive collection of fossils and associated paraphernalia, and keeps these items close to his fossicker's tool kit.
It's been over a decade since Australia mourned the loss of national treasure Steve Irwin, but the death of the self-styled Crocodile Hunter still remains at the forefront of his only son's mind. Irwin passed away in the arms of his cameraman after getting stabbed in the heart by the barbed tail of a stingray a notoriously passive sea creature that rarely does fatal damage to humans while the pair were filming a documentary off the coast of Queensland. Despite the circumstances of his father's demise, Robert Irwin named after his grandfather Bob Irwin, founder of Australia Zoo hasn't shied away from wild animals. Far from it, in fact. The confident teenager began following in his father's footsteps from a very young age and is now a TV personality and famous conservationist in his own right, though he's turned out to be much more than just a clone of his old man. This is the untold truth of Robert Irwin.
