When it comes to birthday milestones around the zoo, you can expect us to go all out... In this case, with a phenomenal Crocoseum-shaped cake and a huge guest list!
Visitors joined us from far and wide as Australia Zoo celebrated ten years since Steve achieved his dream of opening the Crocoseum. With an epic croc-feed and special video montage - the crowd reminisced on Steve's passion to build a place to showcase crocodiles in clear ponds, so people could learn more about this incredible species.
Ten years on from it's opening in 2004, the Crocoseum has hosted millions of visitors including the likes of the Dalai Lama and Russell Crowe. It has seen performances from huge names like Jimmy Barnes, Olivia Newton John and Jessica Mauboy, and been the location for over 4400 action-packed Wildlife Warriors shows to date!
The Crocoseum plays host to the daily Wildlife Warriors show which sees 15 different wildlife species swoop, soar and snap in an impressive display that still leaves Terri with a sense of pride.
"The Crocoseum is where we celebrate our dedication to Steve's legacy and welcome guests from around the world to learn about and become involved in the conservation of wildlife and wild places," Terri said.
"The Crocoseum's construction and subsequent success is proof that if, like Steve, you're passionate enough about something, you can make it happen; this is what we try to inspire in people every day through our Wildlife Warrior message," she said.
You can catch Terri, Bindi and Robert feeding the crocs every day these school holidays in an extended Wildlife Warriors show from Midday. Get there early to watch Bindi and The Jungle Girls performing live to our Crocoseum audience before the show at 11:30am - don't miss it!
