Like father, like daughter.
Bindi Irwin, the 8-year-old daughter of the late "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin (http://javascript%3Cb%3E%3C/b%3E:siteSearch%28%27Steve%20Irwin%27%29;), will star in a wildlife series to air on the Discovery Kids network early next year. The show's working title: "Bindi, The Jungle Girl."

Her father, animal lover and conservationist Steve Irwin, died from the poisonous jab of a stingray Sept. 4. Besides Bindi, he left behind her mother, Terri, and 2-year-old brother, Bob.

The show, now in the early stages of production, was originally "going to be a father-daughter thing," starring the nature-loving duo, Discovery publicist Annie Howell told the Associated Press on Monday. "Steve and Bindi were very enthusiastic about doing the show together."

Irwin will appear with Bindi in scenes filmed before his death, his manager John Stainton said in an interview on People magazine's Web site.

I think she's a bit young to carry on her father's legacy...

Good for her. I just hope the Discovery Channel isn't exploiting her through the death of her father. :rolleyes:

I think you mistyped. :wink:

It may very well be the case of the cash machine still wanting to be fed but if it was truly her decision, I might have advised her to wait a few years before making that type of decision. I doubt she is even over the loss of her father yet.

What is that thing on her face? Is it a mic or is it part of her face? I'm not trying to be mean or funny here, I'm just wondering. I thought it was a dangling earring at first glance, but she doesn't have one in the other ear.

As far as her doing this, I don't think it's the right time for it IMO.

OOOOPS, big typo...I meant ISN'T :wink: I feel bad for her and her mom. Steve Irwin truely cared about saving animals and teaching people about conservation.
