Like father like son: Robert's special tribute to Steve

Steve Irwin's teenage son Robert is a spitting image of his late father.

The 15-year-old honoured his dad in a heartfelt Instagram post, sharing two images side-by-side.

The photos were taken 15 years apart, one shows Steve feeding a crocodile named Murray.

The second shows Robert, wearing the same outfit as his dad, standing in the same location also feeding Murray.

"Dad and me feeding Murray … same place, same croc - two photos 15 years apart," he wrote alongside the photos.

His father, TV's much-adored 'Crocodile Hunter' was killed by a stingray while filming at Batt Reef near Port Douglas, on September 4, 2006.

He was taking part in a documentary called 'Ocean's Deadlist'.

Steve Irwin is survived by his wife Terri and children Robert and Bindi.
