Robert Irwin became overwhelmed with emotion as he witnessed the hatching of an Irwin’s turtle located in the Australia Zoo, noting the experience as “one of the most special moments ever.”

Robert’s father, Steve Irwin, played a major role in the breeding of the rare turtle after finding a female in river in Queensland in 1990.

The hatching was the first of its kind to successfully take place in a zoo. (Trending: Major Women’s Race Won By Two Men)

“This is one of the highlights of my entire life and one of the most special moments ever for Australia Zoo. This is the very first Elseya irwini, or Irwin’s turtle, ever hatched for any zoological facility anywhere in the world,” he exclaimed.

“This species is a turtle that dad originally discovered out in the wild, and for the first time we’ve got a little baby” Robert added as a photo of his father holding the turtle showed in the background.

The footage then revealed Robert handling the baby turtle in his hand while at the zoo. “Right now, he’s getting in his first swim in a brand new pond.”

“This is a little slice of the wild. Let’s get him in the water.” (Trending: Ilhan Omar Caught In Major Lie)

“Off he goes,” Robert said.

“It’s just so surreal,” he added, getting emotional.

“And all those stories from Dad about just how amazing and beautiful they are… I don’t get emotional that much, but I just know Dad would be really proud, Dad would be stoked.”
