Robert and his best friend Riley are visiting the Canadian badlands in Alberta with Riley's Uncle Nate. The badlands are home to over 35 different species of dinosaur fossils. Robert and Riley get pulled back in time to Alberta, Canada during the Late Cretaceous period, to find a heavily armoured euoplocephalus trapped in vines. The rescue doesn't go according to plan when a ferocious gorgosaurus arrives on the scene, looking for a snack!
About the Author
Robert Irwin was born on December 1, 2003 and his abundance of energy at Australia Zoo is contagious! At only eight years old, Robert is a chip off the old block, and with his cheeky grin and natural curiosity, he loves nothing more than catching lizards and skinks, learning about wildlife and the Australian bush, and hanging out with his much-adored sister, Bindi. Like his mum and sister, Robert has also been quite the jetsetter and travelled all over the world attending events like the Emmys and the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards. Robert also travelled to South Africa in 2009 for an exciting filming project, making his cameo appearance alongside star sister Bindi in the full-length feature film Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove. Both Wildlife Warriors, Bindi and Robert received the 'Biggest Greenies' award at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards in 2009, dedicating it to their dad Steve and the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve (SIWR) in Cape York. This was topped off by their induction into the Hall of Slimeo in 2011. Every year, Robert is stoked to be a part of the annual Australia Zoo croc research trip up in far north Queensland, helping the experienced croc team catching and tagging crocodiles with tracking devices before releasing them back into the wild. Robert is super keen to learn all he can about the natural behaviours and migratory patterns of these modern-day dinosaurs! Robert is keen to share his worldwide wildlife journeys, so much so that he stars on his own Australia Zoo TV channel 'Robert's Real Life Adventures'. When Terri, Bindi and Robert are on the road travelling together, you can follow their exciting adventures online. Australia Day 2012 was a very exciting day for Robert, as he publically fed Australia Zoo's American alligators for the very first time, much to the delight of zoo guests. Robert had such a great time feeding the alligators, he can't wait until he is a little bit older and able to feed the crocs!
