Steve Irwin’s Son Looks Exactly Like Him in This Re-created Photo

By Wire Service Content

The resemblance is uncanny in two photos of Irwin men feeding a crocodile.

Robert Irwin, son of the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, honored his father by recreating a photo from 15 years ago.

Both are snapped in the same location tossing some meat to a crocodile named Murray.

Robert, 15, posted the two pictures on Instagram Wednesday, writing, “Dad and me feeding Murray… same place, same croc—two photos 15 years apart ❤️”

Steve died in 2006 at age 44 after a stingray struck him through the chest. Robert was almost 3 years old when the accident occurred.

Robert, his older sister Bindi and their mom Terri continued to honor Steve’s legacy by caring for more than 1,200 animals at the Australia Zoo. Their work is featured in the show “Crikey! It’s The Irwins.”

Bindi Irwin, last year, celebrated her father’s birthday with a message on Instagram.

“Happy Birthday to my dad and grandmother. I wish so much that I could give you birthday hugs. You are both in my heart today and I hope you are celebrating together,” Bindi wrote.

Terri Irwin Still Mourns ‘Crocodile Hunter’

Terri Irwin was Steve’s devoted partner and revealed earlier this year to People magazine that she hasn’t been on a date since her husband passed away.

“I’ve already had my happily ever after,” Terri shared. Having recently started a new Animal Planet series alongside owning and running the Australia Zoo, we can see how the experienced wildlife expert might not be able to find the time for dating, even if she wanted to. “I think it’s wonderful when people who have lost someone find love again,” Terri clarified, “but I’m not personally looking, and I haven’t been on a date in 27 years.”

Family life is both important and extremely fulfilling for Terri: “I have two beautiful kids, a really full plate,” she said.

While the true love of her life has tragically come and gone, her life nonetheless remains full of purpose and meaning. “Steve was someone who was larger than life and really did live life to the fullest,” Terri shared. “That’s what I want to do, and share.”
