Steve Irwin’s 13-Year-Old Son Is An Incredible Photographer.

Remember Steve Irwin, the crocodile hunter who was like the real-life Crocodile Dundee? The Australian animal enthusiast lost his life doing the very thing he loved the most, which was being in the presence of animals. Since then, fans have mourned his loss, and hoped someone would step in to fill his shoes. Well, now it looks like someone has, and it's Irwin's very own son, Robert. Like his dad, he's fearless and is coming face to face with some of the most unusual, and in some cases, deadliest creatures on the planet and in the process, becoming an award-winning photographer... at 13! Crikey!

Like his older sister, Bindi, Robert was always taught to love animals.

His father, Steve Irwin, sowed that philosophy seemingly into their DNA, and now it seems that he's ready to pick up where his father left off and tackle the most beautiful and most dangerous animals on the planet.

To that end, Robert has decided to pick up his camera and go hunting for the perfect shot.

Now, at such a young age, he's taking his camera and taking some amazing photos of all sorts of wildlife, like this bird. Doesn't he look so much like his father in this one?

He's certainly not afraid to get up close and personal with some animals.

How he managed to take a photo of these horrifying teeth from a crocodile is beyond us, but Robert, we have to give you credit for being so freaking fearless.

He's certainly not afraid to get up close and personal with some animals.

Most kids his age are probably playing with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

But Robert is busy capturing a real-life ninja turtle under the sea! Now this is so National Geographic worthy. Cowabunga, dude!

Getting up close and personal with all kinds of dangerous animals is his thing.

Like his dad, Robert isn't afraid of the unknown, or dangerous reptiles like this snake, which sends chills down our spines. But Robert doesn't scare easily.

Getting up close and personal with all kinds of dangerous animals is his thing.
