Young Robert is a spitting image of his father, with the blond hair and similar Khaki Safari suits.

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

Steve tragically died after a fatal encounter with a stingray that barbed him in the chest at Batt Reef in Queensland, back in September 2006.

Robert Irwin, son of the late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin, honored his father by recreating a photo from 15 years ago.

He captioned the photo which read, "Dad and me feeding Murray... same place, same croc - two photos 15 years apart".

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

During an interview with Insider in 2018, Bindi, the sister of Robert said, "I've gotten older, I've realized that I'm able to carry on in his footsteps and make sure that his legacy continues on forever".

"I hope that sharing these stories can be a pertinent reminder of the enormity of his legacy, a legacy that has not only taught us the importance of reconnecting with our environment but to be passionate in doing so", Bob added.

Robert is the son of American-born Terri and Steve.

Bearing an uncanny resemblance to Steve, Robert has followed his father's path to become an active wildlife conservationist who has already appeared multiple times in celebrity talk show The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

The 15-year-old is a wildlife photographer and is working with a number of risky animals at the Australia Zoo.
