THAT was a rhetor­i­cal ques­tion – no one can pull off khaki like Steve Ir­win could.

But staff at Aus­tralia Zoo en­cour­aged all fans to don their best greens yes­ter­day, in mem­ory of the late Aussie icon.

The zoo cel­e­brated Khaki It Day in hon­our of the fa­mous croc­o­dile hunter, who died on Septem­ber 4, 2006, af­ter his chest was pierced by a stingray barb while film­ing an un­der­wa­ter doc­u­men­tary film ti­tled Ocean’s Dead­li­est.

Gates opened ear­lier than usual at the Beer­wah zoo, with Mix FM cook­ing up at 8am break­fast for zoo-go­ers, fol­lowed by a per­for­mance from mu­si­cian Troy Cas­sar-Da­ley, belt­ing out his great­est hits.

Terry, Bindi and Robert Ir­win put on a croc-feed­ing show. All pro­ceeds went to­wards the zoo’s Wildlife War­riors’ con­ser­va­tion pro­gram. LEG­END: Steve Ir­win.
