Anyway... R.I.P. Steve. You were such a wonderful guy in all Australia, and I'm gonna miss you!
We may have rolled our eyes at Steve's manic energy, but we all respected and admired him for his dedication to the environment and his obvious love for his family.
Dangled his baby infront of a crocodile, mate!
The experts are baffled at how the sting ray could have killed him since it's so rare that sting rays kill. I believe one scientist said these animals are normally dosile, that people ride these things without ever getting stung and then he added "He [Irwin] must have been really provoking it somehow." At which point I fell over in a fit of laughter.
Steve Iriwn provoking an animal to attack?!? NEVER! NOT IN A MILLION FRIGGEN YEARS.

It's very sad that he was taken away from us so young!
Imagine all the children around the world...
Remember Sigfried and Roy?

Ditto, apart from the fact I heard about it from my brother. I felt so crushed when I heard, although to be honest, when I first heard it f I just asked 'Well, what happened to him?' 'cause, knowing how he was, I knew he'd been killed by some sort of animal. But... by a stingray... I felt so pissed after hearing that due to the fact stingray deaths are really rare. (He's the 3rd person to be officially killed by one in Australia.)
The thing is... he died while recording a documentry, meaning his death was recorded. It's supposed to show him pulling the barb out then dying shortly after.
I'm so sad about this, as I grew up secretly 'idolising' him, (Around 8-12) and can remember watching his show every Saturday morning with my dad. I hope it gets shown more now so more people see how much he loved the natural world and how great he was.
Happy trails, Steve Irwin. You're wrestling aligators in the sky now.
