The crocodile hunter is going to be immortalised in an iconic way!
If you say the words 'Crocodile Hunter' you would be hard pushed to find someone that wouldn't think of Aussie wildlife star, Steve Irwin.
The reptile lover took the natural world by storm in the nineties and noughties with his exciting wildlife shows which showed him getting up close and personal with some of Australia's most deadly critters.
Sadly, during a filming expedition in September 2006, Steve was stabbed in the heart by a stingray barb while snorkelling and passed away from his injury.
Since then, his devoted family - wife Terri, daughter Bindi and son Robert - have kept up the management of his Australia Zoo wildlife park and continued to raise awareness about animals and the Australian environment in his memory.
But now a new legacy is about to unfold for the Aussie sensation as he has been granted a star on the prestigious Hollywood Walk Of Fame.

What made the announcement even more special is that his family caught their reaction on camera and it is sooo heart warming!
They were asked to film themselves watching a video messaged which revealed the exciting news and their reaction is so genuine and lovely to watch.
As his wife Terri says in the clip "he's going to Hollywood" and we think it's about time he landed on the famous patch of pavement.
Robert and Bindi's famous dad will now be immortalised on the famous street in LA's star studded Hollywood alongside the likes of Michael Jackson, Walt Disney and Jackie Chan.
