Robert Irwin recreates famous photo of his dad Steve

Robert Irwin looks almost indistinguishable from his father Steve Irwin in a newly released photo.

The photo, where 15-year-old Robert recreates a famous shot of his father, shows crocodile Murray being fed a chicken.

Robert stands dangerously close to the crocodile, tossing the chicken into it's mouth.

Robert posted it on Instagram next to a photo of Steve feeding Murray, with the caption pointing out the only thing that has changed in the photo is who's feeding Murray.

"Dad and me feeding Murray... same place, same croc - two photos 15 years apart," Robert wrote.

Commenters said they thought Steve would be proud of Robert if he was alive to see him as a teenager.

"Can’t begin to imagine how proud he would be Robert.Xx," The Project host Lisa Wilkinson wrote.

"This is truly everything! Your Dad must be overjoyed to see you literary walk in his footsteps!" actress Emmy Perry wrote.

Robert was three years old when Steve died from blood loss after being stung in the chest by a stingray.
