Australia Zoo honours crocodile hunter on Steve Irwin Day

AUSTRALIA Zoo has given tribute to its Aussie legend Steve Irwin, urging visitors to "khaki it" in honour of the crocodile hunter.

The Irwin family and Wildlife Warriors conservation group celebrated Steve Irwin Day on November 15, inviting country music star Troy Cassar-Daley to perform for crowds at the zoo.
