Funeral for Steve Irwin

Steve Irwin

The funeral for Steve Irwin - the Crocodile Hunter - has taken place.

Steve's family and friends attended a small service, and it's thought he's going to be buried at his zoo.

The Australian government offered to give him a very big funeral, but his family refused as they didn't think he would have wanted one.

One of Steve's close friends, John Stainton, said a service would be held for members of the public to remember the adventurous animal expert.

It's thought that a statue of the Crocodile Hunter will be put up at the Australia Zoo in Queensland which Steve ran with his family.

Lots of people have donated cash to Wildlife Warriors, Steve's charity.

People have also been leaving flowers and messages for him outside his zoo.
