“Time to put my shoe on… Oh, wait a minute,” Irwin said to the camera.
“Maybe not,” he added, after focusing in on a spider that had retreated to the back of his sneaker.
“POV: You live in Australia,” he captioned the post, shared on Tuesday.
Irwin’s girlfriend Rorie Buckey reposted the hilarious video on her Instagram stories.
“I’d be terrified of wearing shoes again omg,” one follower responded.
“Bro that’s crazy! I will take grizzly bears over that any day,” a second said.
“You Australian people are very brave,” another wrote.
Meanwhile, Australians were also among the commenters, also shocked by Irwin’s findings.
“I live in Australia and this is terrifying,” one Aussie said.
“Everyone saying they refuse to come to Australia because of this – you don’t find this in the big cities. I live in Sydney and this scares me just as much!!” added a user.
Irwin’s post on his creepy find comes after he and his family celebrated his brother-in-law Chandler Powell’s birthday on November 15.
Irwin marked the occasion by posting a hilarious photo taken 10 years ago.
The never-before-seen image shows a nine-year-old Robert standing in front of his sister Bindi Irwin and Powell, who appear to be about to attend a formal event.
Bindi would have been 15 years old at the time, the same year she and her now husband began dating.
“Then and now … It’s been 10 awesome years that you’ve been part of our family, Chandler — Happy birthday mate!” Irwin said.
The “now” photo shows Irwin with Chandler proudly standing beside Grace, Chandler’s two-year-old daughter with Bindi.
Chandler celebrated his 27th birthday at Australia Zoo on November 15 surrounded by Bindi, Grace, Robert, Rorie Buckey and Terri Irwin.
Bindi shared a photo of the family celebrating in front of a three-tier green and cream cake.
“Celebrating @chandlerpowell is one of my favourite things in the world. ♥️ Happy Birthday, sweetheart,” Bindi captioned the post on Tuesday.
The birthday comes days after the family was dressed to the nines, celebrating the 2023 Steve Irwin Gala in Brisbane.
More than 900 guests attended to raise funds for Wildlife Warriors Worldwide.
Bindi accessorised her black and floral outfit with one of her go-to jewellery pieces for a special occasion — a pendant with a photo of her late dad Steve Irwin.
