It’s hard to believe that the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, has been gone for 17 years now.  I love seeing how his family has kept his legacy alive and following in his footsteps.

His 19 year old son, Robert Irwin, even had a recent experience that mirrored his fathers.  Both were working with a carpet python when they were bitten on the face!  This freaked me out!  Even knowing it was coming…I still jumped!

Watch the video of it happen here

Love that they both used it as a teaching lesson.
