The Crocodile Hunter: Steve Irwin's Son Suffers A Brutal Snake Attack

One thing that many people are afraid of is the prospect of coming face to face with a snake or a crocodile… But it seems that this family, and the son of Steve Irwin, the Discovery Channel's legendary ‘Crocodile Hunter’, don’t share this fear.

Robert Irwin uploaded a video to social media that left lots of his followers in shock. The brave young man suffered an unexpected attack which he recorded and later published on social media. The video ended up going viral in just a few hours.

In the video, you can see the young man, who is an avid photographer at just 16 years old, handling a python, when the animal reacted unexpectedly and attacked him.

The snake went straight for the young man’s face, who fortunately managed to dodge out of the way thanks to his quick reflexes. Despite ducking the attack, however, the snake still managed tobite one of his cheeks.

Robert inherited his father’s love for dangerous animals and in fact, the young man works at a zoo in Australia and often mentions his father in his many Instagram posts.

And as coincidence would have it, a very similar video also exists of his father, Steve Irwin aka TheCrocodile Hunter, as he too was bitten by a snake on his face.

Check out the video above for more details.
