This is what I found on

Robert Irwin, the youngest child of the late “Crocodile Hunter” and famed zookeeper Steve Irwin, tweeted a selfie Tuesday that he took with his “self isolation buddy” during the coronavirus outbreak, a tortoise named Igloo.

“My self isolation buddy,” the 16-year-old captioned the post, which had racked up more than 800,000 likes as of Wednesday afternoon.

According to the website for the Australia Zoo, which is owned by the Irwins, Igloo is an Aldabra tortoise. The Smithsonian’s National Zoo & Conservation Biology Institute says the species was “one of the first species to be protected to ensure its survival.”
