The son of the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin stopped by NBC Studios in NYC to introduce the host to some four-legged animals including a sugar glider, peppered cockroaches and African serval kittens. But it was a big, baby camel named Wednesday who stole the show.
When the 15-year-old explained to Fallon that the desert animals greet others by putting their faces really close to each other, the NBC star himself gave it a try — and got a little surprise in return! Wednesday went in for a French kiss, causing the audience to erupt in laughter.
“Oh, my gosh, I just made out with a camel,” the shocked Saturday Night Live alum reacted. “This is unbelievable.”
The fun didn’t stop there: Fallon got to bottle feed Wednesday while the Australian-born teen explained that camels “don’t spit,” but “when they’re angry, they’ll regurgitate on a possible threat.”
“Thank you for telling me that now. I appreciate it,” joked the 44-year-old.
It’s no surprise, however, that the camel warmed up to Fallon so quickly. In 2017 when the Animal Planet star first made his late-night TV debut, he brought along two sloths with him. While the baby, Valentino, preferred not to be held, the 25-pound Serenity wouldn’t let go of the host.
“I think it’s official,” joked the conservationist. “You’re a sloth whisperer.”
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs on NBC weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET.
