It has been such a difficult moment for the entire world, and everyone is aware that one of the best ways to protect ourselves from the current worldwide pandemic is to isolate ourselves. But living alone is definitely not simple. In this trying time, we all need a special someone to keep us company. Most of the time, it ought to be our family members with whom we live in a house. However, the Irwin family’s decision to live in isolation in a zoo is undoubtedly something very unusual.
Steve Irwin, the well-known Crocodile Hunter, passed unexpectedly in 2006, but his wife Terry and their two children, Bindi and Robert, have stepped up to take care of his legacy: the 700-acre Australia Zoo in Queensland. It’s reasonable to assume that the zoo’s diverse collection of birds, mammals, and reptiles ensures that their lives are never dull.
Robert Irwin, Steve’s son, recently provided evidence of this by sharing a sweet picture of himself with an Aldabra tortoise he referred to as his “isolation friend” on Twitter. This picture instantly won the hearts of many animal lovers all around the world!
Igloo, a family buddy and the endearing tortoise in that gorgeous selfie, is there. Actually, Chandler, Robert’s brother-in-law and Bini’s new husband, enjoy spending time with this adorable reptile just as much as Robert does.
The introduction to Igloo on the zoo’s website describes him as an extremely adorable animal. He enjoys being petted and scratched, as well as cooling down in his pond and eating delectable grass and vegetables during the day. Above all, he is there as a representative for his wild cousins, who are under several threats as a result of illicit hunting.
