Robert Irwin and animals stop by Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show

ROBERT Irwin has stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with some furry and not so furry friends.

The Australia Zoo teen appeared on the Thanksgiving Edition of The Tonight Show on Thursday to spread the message of conservation by inspiring people to love animals, Australia Zoo said on Facebook.

Enthusiastically, Robert introduced and explained each of the animals to Jimmy which included a tamandua, two leopard cubs, a porcupine and albino python.

While Jimmy looked like he might not have been sure about the anteater that "almost got" him or the leopard cubs climbing all over him or getting face-to-face with Peanut the porcupine, Robert did us proud.

Well done Robert!
