Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin died over a decade ago and Hollywood finally honors him with a star on the Walk of Fame. As New Idea reports, the conversationalist’s daughter is overcome with emotion for this recognition.


Steve Irwin was only 44 when he went out on an adventure he loved: filming on the Great Barrier Reef near Port Douglas. While at it, a stingray struck him with a barb to the heart and killed him. He was one of the most celebrated crocodile hunters and conservationists world over, and so the news hit most people in his world hard. The years passed may have dulled the pain, but the man is never going to be forgotten given all the efforts he put to conservation when he lived.


This last week, Hollywood did something beautiful in Irwin’s memory; he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This gesture touched many, but most of all his daughter, Bindi Irwin who got emotional at the event. 'Never in my wildest dreams,' she said in tears, while her supportive brother, Robert added that theirs was the best dad there was. 'He was the best and most incredible conservationist, but also the best dad.'


In a fitting tribute to the man of the hour, the family brought a giant python to the event and the reptile was seen slithering over the star.

Later, Bindi took to Twitter to let the world know that her mother meant the world to her.

“On nights like this we celebrate everything Dad achieved but I’d also like to take a moment of appreciation for my mum. Her determination & love is what keeps Dad’s important work going. Dad really was the luckiest man alive to marry such an amazing woman. I love her beyond words.”

On May 5, conservationists gathered at the Steve Irwin Gala Dinner in Beverly Hills to celebrate his life and legacy. The man lives on even after his death.
