It was in 2003 when Steve Irwin, the crocodile hunter, brought a gigantic snake to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. 14 years later, his now teenage son, Robert Irwin, recreated the image as he made his first appearance on the late night show with host Jimmy Fallon. 13-year-old Robert introduced the host to a bunch of exotic animals including a giant red tail boa constrictor. While most of us would squirm with fear around wild animals, like the host himself, the young Robert was a total natural as he held a crocodile, a snake and a screaming armadillo with equal ease. He also brought along a fluffy visitor, a 25-pound sloth Serenity who refused to let Jimmy go.
