In a recent Instagram post, Robert uploaded footage of his late father being bitten by a python snake. And believe it or not, he had a similar encounter himself! In the video, you can see Robert handling the very same snake and getting bitten on his nose and eyebrow. Talk about a scary resemblance!

Robert captioned the video, “Déjà vu. Dad and me getting bitten by the same species of snake (carpet python) decades apart. I found this python on the side of the road, but as you can see, sometimes snake rescues don’t quite go to plan 😂”

Both Robert and his father, Steve, share a love for animals and didn’t hesitate to face the bites bravely. Just like his dad, Robert kept his composure and attended to his wounds after the snake encounter. “I got a little too close, so he gave me a bite. They’ve got extremely sharp teeth like little needles,” Robert explained.

But despite growing up without his dad, Robert has become an incredible man, much like his late father. Steve would undoubtedly be proud of the work his son is doing to keep his memory alive.
