A Fullsome Tribute to Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter

Steve Irwin, the Crocodile Hunter died yesterday when his heart was pierced by the serrated, poisonous spine of a stingray as he swam with the creature Monday while shooting a new TV show on the Great Barrier Reef.He was a committed conservationist, running a wildlife park for crocodiles and other Australian fauna, including kangaroos, koalas and possums, and using some of his TV wealth to buy tracts of land for use as natural habitat.

It’s still so hard to believe that he is no more 😦

  1. Hey,
    That’s a tribute alright. Very nice..it is horrid tho isn’t it, to die doing something you love, or then again perhaps that is the only way to die. That would be the way I want to die but it is so unadventurous na, dying curled up on a bean bag with a book:( or maybe I will drown rescuing someone..hehe

    Apparently Steve was not in form in water and was better off on terra firma. Hmmm..give me water anyday.

  2. Yes his reflexes in the water might not have been as good as on land though i have seen him fooling around with sharks too.

    and yes in a way he died doing what he loved to do the most. How many of us even get the chance to do what we love the most in our lives? 🙂
