In this episode of ‘Crikey! It’s The Irwins,’ Robert Irwin gets the chance to swim with Gloria the Reticulated Python. It’s a dangerous maneuver, but one that enriches the snake and thrills the audience.
Meet Gloria, a Reticulated Python living at the Australia Zoo. She, like her other python brethren, loves to swim, so she’s going to get a bit of mental exercise.
Robert Irwin will get the chance to swim with Gloria, making it the first time he has swum with a Reticulated Python. While this is a dangerous exercise, it’s good to teach the audience about this amazing creature, and swimming is great for Gloria as well.
