Bindi Irwin, daughter of nature expert and TV personality Steve Irwin, said her father was very proud when she first wrestled a crocodile.
The 18-year-old aspiring actress recalled that she was eight at the time of the incident, reported Us Weekly.
"This one day on our very last croc trip with Dad he decided I was old enough to be able to jump on the head of the crocodile. I was this little eight-year-old girl and Dad goes, 'I believe in you. You can do this, sweetheart.'
"I just remember how excited I was that Dad believed in me to jump on the crocodile's head. It was actually our last family photo together... He believed in me, and all I wanted to do was make him proud," Bindi said.
Steve passed away at the age of 44 when after he was attacked by a stingray that pierced his heart and caused him to bleed to death while filming documentary series "Ocean's Deadliest".
