-Robert, it's always good to see you.
-It is so great to see you. -How are you doing?
Everything good? -I am absolutely awesome.
Thank you so much for having me back on.
You have...the best audience,
the best viewers in the entire world.
[ Cheers and applause ]
-I agree.
Have you been getting good feedback from your appearances?
-Absolutely. Everyone's been so nice.
So thank you very much. It's just a great experience.
-Oh, I'm happy. -Thank you.
-We love having you on.
You always bring really cool animals.
And it's very informative but also very scary for me.
-[ Laughs ]
-But first, I want to talk about --
You are going to go on a big trip here.
What's the expedition? Tell us about that.
-Yeah. So, every single year a team of scientists
from the Australia zoo and my family
actually go up to the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve,
which is this huge reserve.
And it's about the size of New York City,
and it's just massive.
And we've got all kinds of different animals there.
And we've actually invited people to come with us
on an expedition to research all these different animals.
We've actually got the most comprehensive study of
crocodiles in the entire world.
We're learning these amazing things.
It's techniques that my dad actually started.
So anyone who wants to can actually come with us
and experience this remote bushland in Australia.
-Really? -It's great. It is amazing.
-What do we have to do? Go to a website or something?
-Exactly. Yeah.
So, you go to australiazooexpeditions.com.
And you can come with us.
The reserve is the size -- It's huge.
It's twice the size of Singapore.
It's amazing.
-Wow. My goodness.
-Yeah. Yeah.
-I noticed you didn't invite me personally.
But you're inviting everybody --
[ Laughter ]
Anyone who wants to do it. Yeah.
-Well, actually, with our crocodiles,
we've caught over 150.
And I know that you can't come with us
because you'll be doing the show.
But we've decided that the first crocodile
that we're going to catch,
we are going to name Jimmy Fallon, after you.
[ Cheers and applause ]
-Really?
-Yes. Absolutely. -No way.
-And you can actually go online.
-And I can check on him and stuff?
-You can track Jimmy Fallon.
You can see exactly where he goes.
It'll be awesome.
-It's like Twitter except for alligators.
Yeah. You can track where --
-Yes. Exactly.
-Yes. Exactly. You're totally right. Yeah.
-I'm honored. That's so cool.
All right, Robert, what did you bring me today?
Let's see some animals.
-All right. First up we've got actually
a very cute and fluffy animal to start with.
This is Joe.
And he's a North American badger.
He is really cool.
So the North American badgers... -Oh, honey badger.
-...as the name suggests --
-Yeah, badgers don't care. No. -Yeah. Exactly.
Now, they are similar to the honey badger.
-Is that hurting you at all?
-No, no, he's all good.
They are quite feisty.
In fact, in Africa,
the honey badger has been known to back down lions.
They have no fear at all.
-They really don't.
-Yeah, but I think you might actually be able to pet him
if you'd like.
There you go. Give him a little pet.
[ Laughter ]
He loves his pets. He really does.
There you go. -He just looked at me.
[ Laughter ]
-I don't like this part. -There you go.
Yep. He feels like I thought he would, too.
-He's soft. And you see he's got that really loose skin.
So if an animal were to grab him,
he can turn around and bite them.
Yeah, it's really cool.
-How is he allowed to be here?
[ Laughter ]
How old is he? -He's fine. He's a young one.
So he's only about a month old.
So he's not going to do too much damage.
-That is a beautiful animal.
-But we can feed him if you'd like.
-Sure.
-We've got a little plate of food there.
-And he's omnivorous,
so he'll eat plants and he'll also eat little animals as well.
So if you pop that right there.
Oh, gave me a little nip. There we go.
[ Laughter ]
There you go.
-There you go, pal. Look at that.
He lifted the plate up himself and everything.
Isn't that wild?
[ Laughter ]
-And you can see his nose there.
He's got a really acute sense of smell.
So he can detect anything from, like, a little animal,
like a bird or maybe a little insect.
They're really, really good that way.
And see those little claws there, too?
They're great at digging.
And when he gets older, in the wild,
he would actually build a den underground and dig it out.
-Yeah. -It's fascinating.
-He can back down a lion, you said?
-Yeah. Yeah, so if he --
[ Laughter ]
If he catches a food item, nothing takes it off him.
-I think we're ready to get rid of him.
-Yeah, okay. -Great to see him.
It was great to see him. -Thank you.
[ Cheers and applause ]
There we go.
-All right. -It's pretty exciting.
-Yeah.
Do you have anything like stuffed animals or like toys?
Like, plush animals?
-Not this time, sorry. -No, okay, yeah.
-But we've got a really special one.
This is a reptile this time.
-Okay. -And this is Donatella.
And Donatella is an alligator snapping turtle.
Isn't he amazing?
So, he's very young.
He's only about two years old at the moment.
But you're welcome to hold him.
-Where do I hold him?
-Just down there.
Make sure you don't get anywhere near his mouth
because he's got quite a bite on him.
But this one --
[ Laughter ]
-Why would you hand him to me?
-When they get full grown,
they'll easily just be able to bite through human bone.
[ Laughter ]
He's only about two years old.
-Ah, he's moving his neck!
Wait. How long is his neck? How long is his neck?
-You'll be good. You'll be good.
-He's moving his neck.
Ah! Ah! Ah! Robert, take him!
-All right. All right.
-God, save yourself. Gosh.
He was -- Look at that. Oh, my gosh.
-He's only about two years old.
We've got one that's 100 years old, full grown
that is ready to meet you.
Does that sound good?
-A 100-year-old snapping turtle?
100-year-old snapping turtle, alligator snapping turtle.
-I'd love to see him.
And his name is Sheldon. All right, come on out, Sheldon.
[ Cheers and applause ]
Awesome.
So, this is one that you would definitely not want to get
anywhere near his mouth.
[ Laughter ]
-Look at that. Oh, my.
-You can see just there, on the end of his tongue,
he's got this thing called the lingual lure,
and it looks a bit like a worm.
So, he'll cram himself underwater in a little crevice
and wiggle it around so, like, a little fish might think
it's a food item.
And then it will swim right up into his mouth
and then all of a sudden -- wham -- he grabs the fish.
[ Laughter ]
It is astonishing.
-We were both making the same face at one point.
[ Laughter ]
-How cool is he?
[ Cheers and applause ]
That's awesome. Isn't he just like a dinosaur?
-I can't believe I was afraid of that little guy.
Yeah, Donatella, please.
You're a joke, Donatella, please. Grow up.
One day, you wish, you wish.
-In 100 years, that's what it'll look like.
-In 100 years, yeah, I'll see you in 100 years, buddy, please.
-Well, thank you very much, Sheldon.
-Bye, Sheldon. -See you later, mate.
-Take care, buddy. Well done, well done.
[ Cheers and applause ]
-Awesome. -Well done.
-That is great. -You have more stuff?
-Yes! Oh, absolutely! Okay. So, for this one,
I want you to come around to the front of the desk.
All right. So, we're going to come around.
I'll grab this bottle.
Now, you're welcome just to go on, like,
on your hands and knees right here.
You can just kneel down like this.
You're fine. You'll be fine. It's all good.
-I know. This is just --
-And we're about to meet Hazel.
So come on out, Hazel.
-See, it sounds like a cute name,
and it's probably going to be something that frightens.
-No, it is very cute. Here she is.
So, Hazel is a baby kangaroo.
[ Audience awws ]
What do you think?
What do you think? Do you want your bottle?
There you go.
Oh, isn't she great?
[ Applause ]
So, these are from --
-How old is this baby?
-She's actually only about eight months at the moment.
She's a joey. She's a baby kangaroo.
And these guys, of course, occur in Australia.
If you'd like to come around,
you can actually hold this bottle and feed her.
So come around to this side.
-Be very careful.
She's like a little...
-There you go.
-Like a little bunny rabbit kind of thing.
-Yeah. It's like an oversized bunny rabbit.
And she's actually quite small, but she will get a lot bigger.
This particular species is the red kangaroo.
And they're the largest kangaroo species.
And you can see those legs.
That's what helps them jump.
They can jump 30 feet in one single leap.
It's astonishing. There we go.
-She's staring me down.
-I think she's got all her milk.
-What do they eat if people aren't out there
with bottles of milk?
-Just grass. Just grass. It's okay.
-Okay, good. -But I think she's done.
What you can do is if you kind of lightly blow in her face,
like this, that's kind of how you introduce yourself.
-Blow on her face? -Yeah, blow in her face.
-Hazel, thank you for...
-[ Laughing ] No.
-No. Right?
She doesn't want to.
[ Audience awws ]
-She gives you a little kiss.
-That's pretty cute. She gave you a kiss.
-She's so cute.
-All right, Hazel, thank you for coming on the show.
I appreciate it.
-Thank you. Bye-bye. -We'll see you soon. Oh.
[ Laughter ]
-I just want to blow on it. I didn't know what to do.
Okay, good.
[ Laughter ]
All right, good.
[ Cheers and applause ]
That was nerve-racking as well. -All right.
Actually, how about we come around one more time,
because this animal --
I want you to just sit here in front of the desk.
This one can be a little bit feisty.
-This one is going to attack me. I know it. I can feel it.
-So, I want you to just grab this bottle.
-Okay. -Okay.
-Yeah.
-Now, the animal that I'm about to get out --
-I don't drink this bottle, no. This is for the animal.
-The animal that I'm about to bring out, it's amazing.
They are an African animal.
They can get up to 300 pounds,
and they've been known to kill adult lions.
They are amazing. All right. Here we go.
Are you ready?
-We might have to go to commercial.
[ Laughter ]
-Ready for this? Here we go. -Yeah.
Let's pop this here.
All right, come on out, guys.
-Oh, no. What are they?
-They're baby warthogs.
They're so cute.
You can give them a bottle.
-How many of them are there?
-There are three of them in here.
There you go. Have your milk.
Now, these guys are really, really young.
They're only a couple months old.
But when they are full grown,
as I said, they'll get up and over 300 pounds in weight.
-300 pounds each.
-Aren't they incredible? -This is amazing.
-We've got Eenie, Meanie, and Miny.
-Oh, my gosh!
They've got very cute names.
And when they get older, they'll develop these tusks.
[ Laughs ]
And the tusk is what helps them dig underground.
They love eating tree roots.
-They're tough already.
This one's like really getting into this nipple here. Yeah.
-Yeah. Aren't they wild?
So, the warthogs are just amazing.
They're one of my favorite animals.
-Miny, come here. Is this Meanie or Miny?
-That's Miny. -Miny.
Robert, thank you so much
for coming on and bringing these animals.
-This is always a treat for us. -Oh, totally. No worries.
Robert Irwin, everybody.
[ Cheers and applause ]
