Bindi Irwin was just eight years old when her father, the beloved Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin, was tragically killed by a stingray barb.
We’re now starting to find out how much she learned from her father in those eight formative years.
One glimpse at her Instagram reveals a young woman with the same affinity for interacting with wildlife as her father.
She’s seen hanging out with half the animal kingdom, including tigers, massive snakes, rhinos, lemurs, giant tortoises, and camels.
There’s even a photo of her with a stingray.
The most precious of photos, though, are those of life with her father. Each is captioned with a quote that offers equal parts sympathy and inspiration for others who can relate to losing a loved one.
She embraces a lust for adventure, travelling the world to take in everything our planet has to offer. And yes, she even handles some alligators.
