An event in Australia honored the legendary “crocodile hunter” Steve Irwin.
Steve Irwin Day took place on Nov. 15, 2022, at the Australia Zoo — and the event featured special guests and demonstrations.
The family of the late crocodile hunter honored his legacy in Beerwah, Australia, by making an appearance and showing their work with a crocodile.

Irwin’s son, Robert, and his wife, Terri, were at the zoo and paid tribute to their late father and husband, respectively.
In a video taken at the event, the Irwins can be seen showing off a crocodile to the crowd.
The large reptile comes out to the arena in the water, toward Terri Irwin — and then is redirected toward young Robert Irwin.
Robert (Steve Irwin’s son) can be seen coercing the crocodile toward him — noting the creature is quite smart.

“He’s being a little bit funny. He’s a very intelligent crocodile. He’s very, very smart,” he said.
Throughout the video, the Irwins can be seen describing what the crocodile is doing, thinking and more.
Steve Irwin Day is celebrated each year on November 15 to celebrate the life and legacy of Irwin — all while helping to raise money for the Australia Zoo Wildlife Warriors.
