Steve Irwin, alias the Crocodile Hunter,

Crikey he was special and very dedicated to all not really loved animals like crocs, snakes, reptiles.

He was special and we will miss the Saturday afternoon shows on TV.

If you go to Australia on holiday visit the Australian Zoo, in Beerwah, North of Brisbane, Queensland.

R.I.P. Steve

This was a tradgety for the whole world.Outside of Jaque Cousteau steve was the mutual of omahas wild kindom in the 1990s and the 21st first century. What he did for wild life and endangered species was unsurpassed. He will be missed by all. My tv set is a lot dimmer now that hes gone. Goodbye Steve and Rest in Peace.

A truely great man who's shows were done with excellent taste. A show you could let your kids watch and not be on guard. No drinking, smoking, foul language or off color humor. See, we can still enjoy clean, respectful tv shows. I hope that his wife and team take over where he left off. Thanks Steve for all the fun and opening my eyes up to conservation and the larger picture.

No one should ever take the types of unnecessary risks that he took.

Friends, I was shocked.

The way, the media treated him was no respect, tho he did a lot for us to get to know these animals better. He did what a person must do who is really interested in the world he/she lives in, not like many.

I really appreciate what he has done, and will probably miss the tought to visit him at the ZOO one day.

Don, pls, don`t use this topic for letting out the steam. Thanks.

The man lived and died doing what he enjoyed.


How can you knock him for that?

He was just another beautiful person, from a beautiful place, now headed home.

Thanks Steve.
