Bindi Irwin Shares Adorable Pics of Daughter Grace With Her ‘New Best Friend’

by Quentin Blount

Another day, another adorable Bindi Irwin social media post with her baby girl, Grace Warrior, at the beautiful Australia Zoo.

Is there anything better than seeing Bindi Irwin as a mom? She and her daughter Grace Warrior have become heartthrobs all accross the world. The 23-year-old mom gave birth to her first girl back on March 25. Baby Grace Warrior is the first child between Bindi and her husband, Chandler Powell. As a matter of fact, baby Grace was born on the couple’s wedding anniversary.

On Sunday evening, however, Bindi took to her official Instagram account (where she has more than 4.8 million followers) to post a series of photos with her daughter and her daughter’s new friend. It seems that with each passing day, little Grace Warrior is getting more and more comfortable around the animals at the Australia Zoo. Seeing as who her parents are, and who her grandparents are, we can’t see that we’re that surprised.

“Two cute chickies,” Bindi captioned the photos. “Meet Grace’s new best friend, Fergo, the cassowary chick. They absolutely love each other!”

Check out the cute photos down below:

More About Bindi Irwin’s Daughter’s New Friend

For those at home who don’t know, cassowaries are an endangered group of flightless birds. They are native to the tropical forests of New Guinea, the Aru Islands, and northeastern Australia. The most common is the southern cassowary, which just so happens to be the third-tallest and second-heaviest bird on the planet. It’s only smaller than the emu and the ostrich. The other two species are the northern cassowary and the dwarf cassowary. There used to be a fourth species — the pygmy cassowary — but, unfortunately, they went extinct.

Although they mainly eat fruit, all species of cassowaries are actually omnivores. They eat a wide array of plants in addition to fungi, invertebrates, and some small vertebrates. And even though you can’t tell from Bindi Irwin’s latest post, normally, cassowaries are pretty skeptical of humans. If provoked, these birds are capable of putting out some series injuries to other animals and humans. They have often been labeled “the world’s most dangerous bird.”

It goes without saying that the Irwins are extremely proud to continue on with their cassowary breeding program.

“We are so proud of our breeding program to protect this endangered species. #AustraliaZoo” Bindi wrote.

With all of that said, it’s definitely pretty cool to see that Grace Warrior has already made friends with one. Hopefully Bindi Irwin will continue to post more photos of the two as they grow up together. We’ll have all of that and more content about the Irwin family right here on Outsider.
