In the picture, the young animal-loving couple were smiles as Terri cradles a baby goanna into her chest. 

Steve and Terri tied the knot in 1992 in her home state of Oregon.  

Bindi’s sweet dedication comes after she recently broke down in tears over the fact her late father will never get the chance to meet his first grandchild Grace Warrior.

And thanks to the efforts of a talented visual artist, the young conservationist was able to imagine what such a meeting would have been like had her father survived the stingray attack that claimed his life in 2006.

She shared the artwork, which showed Steve cradling his granddaughter alongside the rest of the Irwin family, with her 4.7 million Instagram followers on May 9.
