Steve Irwin's granddaughter is following in the Crocodile Hunter's footsteps
Bindi Irwin is keeping her late father’s legacy alive through her daughter!
On Sunday, Irwin, the 25-year-old daughter of Steve Irwin, shared a sweet before-and-after post of her daughter that is right up her family’s alley.
In both photos, the toddler sat in the jaws of a “Cameron the Croc” statue, smiling as the inanimate beast held her between its teeth. The first photo dates back to November 2021, while the second was taken just last month.
“Grace is so tall and terrific! I love her so much.❤️,” Bindi’s mother Terri Irwin commented on the photos of her granddaughter.
Before Grace was born, Bindi told The Bump, “I know in my heart that she will forge her own path to make our planet a better place through her connections with the gorgeous animals that we protect here at Australia Zoo and the conservation work we do with animal species around the globe.”
In August, the young mother spoke exclusively to PEOPLE about how “lucky” she felt to have Grace after her struggles with endometriosis.
"For us personally, we feel so lucky to have Grace," Bindi told PEOPLE. "I think that every day I wake up and I look at our beautiful daughter and think she is our tiny little miracle and it makes me cry because we were very, very lucky to have her."

"And there was every chance that we wouldn't have been able to have a little one, so to have our beautiful girl, we are so lucky. And I wish more people would pause before asking, 'Why aren't you having more children?'"
She also explained that it can be “heartbreaking” when people ask her when she’s planning on having more children “because you never know what's going on in someone's life and what's happening behind closed doors.”
Bindi recalled how before her pregnancy with Grace, doctors found 37 lesions and a cyst on her ovary, which she eventually had removed via surgery.
In an Instagram post announcing Grace’s birth, Bindi revealed that Grace's middle names - Warrior Irwin - are a tribute to Steve and “his legacy as the most incredible Wildlife Warrior.”
