Crikey! It’s the Irwins Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast comprises of Terri Irwin, Bindi Irwin and Robert Irwin. We can expect the trio to remain in all its upcoming episodes. Terri who lives adjacent to the tiger enclosure with her children is more cautious and protective of her children. “Any time your kids are doing anything amazing yet somewhat dangerous, you hold your breath,” Terri said. “I’m not going to point you in the direction of something. I’ll take you there. At the zoo, people are surprised that we’re happy to take time with them. Sometimes it takes an hour to walk to my office, but it’s worthwhile — and really cool.”
Crikey! It’s the Irwins Plot: What is it about?
The series centres around the family of a former Australian zookeeper as well as a conservationist, Steve Irwin. He was known as “The Crocodile Hunter” while he was still alive. The family of Steve Irwin resides and works daily at the Australia Zoo. The series films the Irwin family daily who have decided to take care of all the zoo animals and their families. Balancing both is not as easy as it seems. They have to cross every obstacle and face many challenges to follow in their ancestors’ footsteps. The camera also films their struggles that crop up while taking care of the animals who need 24/7 protection.
Steve’s son Robert wants to continue his father’s legacy. He arrives at the zoo to feed a croc named Graham. At the zoo, they deal with different animals differently. It is a new day at the zoo every day. There is a lot happening in the series.
Robert has taken tough training under Steve Irwin’s best friend named Wes to handle Graham who is a huge crocodile at the Zoo’s popular Crocoseum. The Irwin family prepare sedatives for Hunter, a blind Sumatran tiger who has to be taken for his annual eye check-up. The zookeepers take Scarlett, a young giraffe for a road trip and to reunite with her family and kind in South Australia.
