Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter, has got a permanent place in Hollywood history, with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

It comes almost 12 years after he was killed by a stingray during a diving accident.


At the ceremony on Thursday, Steve Irwin’s wife Terri spoke about his love of wildlife.

“In this day and age, we need to applaud, embrace and look after all our wildlife,” she said.

“If we all take a page out of Steve’s book and love everything we are going to be better people, we are going to have more empathy and kindness to all living beings.”
