Australian zookeeper Steve Irwin, nicknamed "The Crocodile Hunter," was a wildlife enthusiast, who was considered a hero for many teenagers, before his life was cut short by a fatal sting from a stingray in 2006 while he was shooting underwater for a documentary.

As a perfect tribute to his father, Steve Irwin's son Robert Irwin recreated an iconic photograph of his father feeding Murray, the most dangerous crocodile of Australia Zoo 15 years later. The picture shared by Robert Irwin has been going viral on social media. He captioned it, "Dad and me feeding Murray... same place, same croc - two photos 15 years apart."

Robert, who will soon have an Animal Planet show his own, talked about his passion for wildlife where he stated, "I think for me, the wildlife work that I get to do, it's what I live for. It's what I love, it's my passion, it's what dad was passionate about, it's what my family is passionate about. It's something that I definitely want to continue for the rest of my life, it's what I've dedicated my life to."
