Bindi Irwin's boyfriend, Chandler Powell, can cross one more thing off his bucket list!
The 19-year-old professional wakeboarder jumped a crocodile for the first time, while joining Bindi on her annual "Croc Trip" through the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve in Far North Queensland, Australia, on Wednesday.
"Cannot describe how excited I am to have jumped my first saltwater crocodile!!!" Powell wrote on Instagram, who was all smiles while holding down the giant aquatic reptile. "Stanley was 9 feet 10 inches long and was last caught in 2013. Blessed to be a part of this awesome work."
A second pic shows Powell and other members of the Australia Zoo holding down the crocodile as Bindi measures its length.
"Here's another shot from my first croc jump!" he wrote. “By far the most amazing feeling in the world. Can't wait for more!"

Hello! It's @bindisueirwin here. Having so much fun on this #InstagramTakeover for our #CrocTrip2016 🐊🌿 This photo was taken yesterday by my amazing brother Robert! Stanley the crocodile was first caught in 2013 at 9' long. Since then he had grown 10 inches and is now 9' 10". Stanley the croc is named after one of Mapoon's indigenous rangers. Our incredible croc team and scientist from the University of Queensland worked together to catch Stanley and we are incredibly excited to continue tracking him for the next few years. Love, Bindi
During an interview with ET in May, the Dancing With the Stars champ gushed about her boyfriend and explained why he’s so special to her.
"I think what's really wonderful about Chandler is that no matter what is happening, he's always there for me and he always makes me smile and laugh and it's brilliant to have someone so kind who really understands your world," she said. "He loves wildlife, he loves conservation and he's just really passionate about making a difference and he's always such a kind person, which is great."
