Chandler Powell recently celebrated World Croc Day with an Instagram photo of a crocodile alongside a lengthy post about their feeding demonstrations.

Chandler Powell is continuing the legacy of his father-in-law, Steve Irwin, as he celebrates World Croc Day in Australia Zoo.

WORLD CROC DAY

Powell recently posted about crocodiles on Instagram as he celebrated the “modern dinosaurs.” The newlywed man takes pride in being part of the team that showcases feeding demos to the public.

“After the croc has been fed, a member of the croc team jumps in the water to encourage the crocs to swim back to their home,” he shared.

His post came with a throwback photo of the predator, taken from one of his first days at the job. “It was a highlight of my life,” he added.

Despite their decision to postpone the initial ceremony, Powell recently tied the knot with Bindi Irwin amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Powell ended his post by inviting his fans and followers to watch the feeding demonstration to leave the audience with a “newfound appreciation” for the crocs.

POWELL’S ALLEGED CROC INCIDENT

Earlier this year, reports claimed that the former wakeboarder had an accident while in the croc museum, where he had to run from the animal.

An onlooker reportedly shared the incident with Women’s Day, where an aggressive crocodile almost attacked Powell.

However, Australia Zoo denied the outlet’s report and said, “There is no truth to this article.” Although Powell is accustomed to handling dangerous animals, he has less experience than the other Irwins.

LOVE IN THE TIME OF CORONAVIRUS

Despite their decision to postpone the initial ceremony, Powell recently tied the knot with Bindi Irwin amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Only a number of people were witness to their union, which took place at Australia Zoo while it was closed. However, Irwin recently announced the reopening of her family’s zoo.

“We’re adapting to create a beautiful experience for everyone,” she said. “I’m especially grateful for my sweetheart family who remind me daily that anything is possible.”

Australia Zoo is home to the Irwins and a place they hold dear to their hearts, as their father also did before his tragic passing.
