He left behind a legacy that few others could ever hope to, introducing young people to the wonders of nature and more than most, his own two children, Bindi and Robert.
20-year-old Bindi is a bit of a jack of all trades, working as an actress, television personality, conservationist, model, singer and dancer, while 15-year-old Robert sticks mainly to TV, every now and then making an appearance at Australia Zoo.
It was there that Robert caught the attentions of the world, as he fed the crocodiles in a live show, but what struck people most was the similarity between himself and his late father.
Sharing two photos to Twitter, Robert explained how the crocodile he fed was the very same one that Steve fed in the same place, 15 years earlier.
It’s amazing how things work at and it goes without saying that Robert’s dad would be dangerously proud of him.
The replies were pretty lovely…
Good on you mate! The world misses your dad. So happy your family is living his legacy!

I have to admit in the past you made me sad because you make me think about him. But now I realize that you make me happy because you make me think about him.

And then there was this one…
