We are where nostalgia lives

Steve Irwin, known as “The Crocodile Hunter,” passed away on September 4, 2006. Now, 11 years after his death, the television personality and zoologist has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Steve Irwin’s parents were wildlife experts, and they opened the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park when Steve was just a child. He grew up surrounded by crocodiles and other animals, and he wrestled his first croc when he was just nine.
