Bindi Irwin’s dancing days are over (for now), but they certainly aren’t forgotten.

Winning Dancing with the Stars took an enormous amount of hard work and dedication, but she couldn’t have gotten there without her loyal dancing partner Derek Hough.

Now she’s found a perfect Irwin family way to say “thank you”: by naming a koala at Australia Zoo after him.


“I am excited because Derek will be visiting Australia very soon to meet his own namesake”, Bindi recently told Sunrise.

Australia Zoo announced the naming via an Instagram update, tongue planted firmly in cheek: “Although he may not be as smooth on the dance floor or as light on his feet as his namesake, he sure is good at melting hearts! ”

Would it have been less of a compliment or more if she had given the name to the crocodile? We have no idea.

Is there any more fitting way a member of the Irwin family could say “thank you”? And now Dancing with the Stars is over, are you missing Bindi’s weekly performances as much as we are?

    • Trevor and Brian. Don’t be nasty. Or perhaps you two would like to show us how you would do it better !!!

    • Then feel free not to comment, Bindi is still a kid and doesn’t need to read comments from some of the IDIOTS who feel the need to be NASTY.

  1. She is amazing girl, her mother must be very proud of her and her father would be as well. She has achieved a lot in her so far short life, good on you Bindi a great ambassador for Australia

    • role model yes. she has opinions, seems to know what she wants in life & wears suitable clothes for her age.

    • She will be a roll model to me when she stops supporting animal CAPTIVITY! Not sure her dad would be very proud of that!

    • Danielya Torres, things will never be the same without Steve Irwin, but they do a lot of good work with the wildlife hospital and wildlife conservation. So give them a break please.

    • Danielya Torres , Her father and grandfather started it, she is just carrying on what they did !!

  2. I think it’s ok not to care but if u don’t care why bother putting it on social media just ignore !

  3. Will you negative people go away. If you don’t like a post fine, but no need to be nasty.

  4. cant stand her ……… RIP Steve .. so sad your wife daughter and son keep sponging off your death
