Following in her dad’s footsteps, after the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin’s death, the 8-year-old little Bindi Irwin seems to have grown enough to take over her father’s responsibilities, who died Sept. 4 from the poisonous jab of a stingray.
To talk about animals – like his father – she has just debuted this Thursday in the American television. ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ greeted its curious and excited audience with the khaki-clad girl skipping across the stage. Ah! Not like any other kid making a stage performance – but by holding a blue-tongued lizard, she greeted her surprised audience.
Prodding the lizard to lick her face in an attempt to show its tongue, the little Bindi told DeGeneres,
This is Spanky. He’s 10 years old. I just love animals. My dad really brought it out in me. He’s the one that made me.
(she loves) all animals, great or small.
To add to what the world would buy and the channel will mint money on, she further said,
I want to be like my dad. I want him to be proud of me.
Are these, also the real words of the kid, who is still in her innocent childhood, letting the program make money of the world’s emotions for her famous father’s tragic death?
What ever be it, with her awaiting starring in a wildlife series to air on the Discovery Kids network early next year, wish her all the best in her new foreseen career, be it too early for her.
