Remembering 'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irvin, Animal Planet To Release "Steve Irwin's Wildlife Warriors" on Sep 16 [PHOTOS]
It's been seven long years since wild life Australian adventure hunter Steve Irwin lost his life to a bite stingray but his memories are still fresh in his fan's minds. The crocodile-hunter's daughter Bindi has turned 15 now and has evolved as a smart teenager who has tried her hands at acting, singing rapping and even doing wildlife hunting.
It was September 4, 2006 when the bravest guy on earth was fatally pierced in the chest by a stingray spine while snorkelling at the Great Barrier Reef. He is survived by his wife Terri, daughter Bindi and son Robert.
The 44-year-old's family continues his legacy on the family' Sunshine Coast at Australia Zoo with Terri owning the zoo. Steve's father Bob Irwin is also an environmentalist.
The late Steve Irwin's family will feature in a new series by Animal Planet called "Steve Irwin's Wildlife Warriors" and it beautifully captures the family's selfless love for wildlife. The 26-episode series is based on the adventurous lives of Irwin family in the Australian Zoo.
Steve's daughter Bindi is a fearless child who has posted pictures of herself on Twitter and Instagram where she is seen holding various animals which even includes a cheetah!
"We caught a Black Headed python! Any good name suggestions?," Bindi asked her friends on Twitter and received many suggestions. Otherwise Bindi appears to be a normal teenager who loves to hangs out with her friends and her now 9-year-old brother Robert.
She is also fond of wearing Khakhi dress just like her father Steve Irwin and other members of the family. "Steve Irwin's Wildlife Warriors" premieres on September 16, 2013, and will air Monday to Friday at 9 PM.
In 2001, an asteroid has been named 57567 Crikey in honour of Irwin and his "signature phrase" "Crickey" which he used to express his excitement after capturing the crocodiles.
In separate news, an Essex man was ironically attacked on the arm by his pet stingray named Steve Irwin. The man named James Hunt survived the attack but will reportedly require physiotherapy and antibiotics to avoid permanent damage.
