Many of us recall Steve Irwin from our childhoods. The animal expert would teach us all about animals we’d never even heard of. But now, Robert Irwin, his son, is carrying on his legacy — let’s learn about legless lizards!

Robert Irwin was driving along a country road when he found a legless lizard in his path. Rather than leaving it there, Irwin created a learning opportunity for all of us.

Have you ever heard of a legless lizard?

It’s not a snake, nor is it an injured lizard. In fact, it’s a unique creature with its own genetic makeup. While it resembles a snake, it differs in a few ways.

Robert Irwin walked us through the basics of legless lizards, including their large tongue and unique scales on their underbelly.

Viewers were thankful to be catching this clip from Robert.

“So thankful to grow up and still be learning about animals from an Irwin,” shared one fan in the comments.

Both Irwin children — Bindi and Robert — have continued their father’s incredible legacy of animal protection and education — and we couldn’t be more grateful for it!
