Robert Irwin is truly fearless!

The Crikey! It's the Irwins star, 18, posted two videos to his TikTok on Tuesday, showing followers a play-by-play of how he wrangled a rather large snake he found in the middle of the road – with his bare hands.

"He's in a very, very bad position," Irwin says as he casually picks up the snake.

"He's on a road – he's at Australia Zoo, this is in the zoo – and he's got crocs on that side and he's got an aviary full of birds," he continued, pointing to the left and right of the road. "He's either going to get eaten or he's going to eat one of our animals."

Irwin then brings the snake in his car with him, pops it in a bag to transport it, and begins to drive to the next destination: the snake's "nice, natural bushland, where he's come from."

In a follow-up video, which he captioned, "Snake rescue part 2!" Irwin is joined by his mom, Terri, calling her "his camera operator for the day."

The mother-son duo then transfers the snake to a more "natural spot" with a "nice little lake" and "plenty of bushland" in the area.

"I think he's slightly bummed out that he can't eat any of our birds, but other than that, I reckon he's pretty happy," he says in the clip.

While Robert is clearly an expert at handling animals of all sorts – just like his father, the late Steve Irwin – he's also known for showing off his incredible photography skills, as seen on his Instagram account, and most recently, on the cover of PEOPLE.

"I have been a passionate wildlife photographer for many years, but taking portraits was a new experience," he told PEOPLE of snapping photos of his niece, Grace Warrior, for a cover story, adding, "I am the proudest uncle!"
