Steve Irwin’s 15-year-old son Bob is following in his father’s footsteps. In addition to becoming a successful wildlife photographer, the teenager also regularly stops by the Australia Zoo, and even works with some of the more dangerous animals.
On July 3, he shared a photo of himself feeding a crocodile named Murray at the zoo, alongside a photo of his father feeding Murray 15 years prior in 2003.
Both Irwin children, Bob and Bindi, and their mother Terri, have continued to work with animals and advocate for wildlife conservation. They all starred together on the 2018 reality TV show “Crikey! It’s the Irwins.”
Bob’s sister Bindi is also interested in following in her father’s footsteps “in [her] own way.” She told INSIDER in 2018 that, “I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized that I’m able to carry on in his footsteps and make sure that his legacy continues on forever.”
She continued, “I really believe that dad is with us every single day, and I think that his spirit lives on in all that we do, and that’s something that I hold really close. Dad was extraordinary. He’ll always be my superhero.”
Between the three of them, it’s clear that the crocodile hunter himself would be extremely proud of his family.
