Bindi Irwin Shares Her ‘DWTS’ Trophy With Her Friends Down Under (PHOTOS)

Well this is just about one of the sweetest things ever! Bindi Irwin took her mirrorball trophy to visit some of her critter friends at her family's Australia Zoo, and of course posed for some adorable pictures.


The Dancing With the Stars champ also got a visit from her pro-dance partner Derek Hough, who she has said became like a brother to her through the course of the show.

I've got to say, she looks just as natural with this kookaburra as she did on the dance floor. 

And check out how close she got Derek to that rhino. I'd be terrified, is all I'm saying.

Reunited with my little @bindisueirwin. A.K.A The Champ!!! #AustraliaZoo

Actually, Derek got quite in touch with his wild side at the zoo.

I think the sweetest thing about Bindi wanting to share her experience with the wildlife at zoo is that it probably helped her feel connected to her late dad, Steve Irwin. There were several times this season when the 17-year-old got extremely emotional talking about how much she missed her dad, and how much he meant to her life.

This seems to be a way she's able to share her new-found talent with Steve. I'm sure he's looking down on her with the proudest smile on his face.
