HONG KONG — The youngest Irwin is following in the TV hosting footsteps of late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin and big sister, Bindi.

Nine-year-old Robert Irwin will co-host “Wild But True” on Discovery Kids Asia, exploring parallels between nature and science.

“It’s about how science has gotten ideas and built from inventions from the natural world,” he said.

Robert says although he was just 3 when his father died, he has vivid memories.

“He was really, really passionate in every single thing that he did. I think it’s really important to carry on for what he did, so I’m really glad that that’s what we’re doing,” he says.

“Wild But True” is set to premiere across Asia in the third quarter of 2014.
