Sadly, Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter has been killed by a Stingray fish :(

He brought the wonderful world of wildlife into our homes and taught people about their beauty and wonder, particularly reptiles.

My heart goes out to his wife Terri and their children, Bindi and Bob :(

Today the world is a much poorer place :(

I cant believe it, Steve Irwin has gone, but he will never be forgotten. Today is a very sad day for all Australians, Steve was the quintessential 'Aussie', full of humour, a great love of animals and a fantastic lust for life. We put right up there with Elvis and Princess Di - We'll always remember where we were when you left us!! All our thoughts go to the wonderful family you have left behind, may they carry on your legacy Steve.

RIP Steve, you will be missed.

And as Steve said CROCS RULE!

OMG!!!  Not to be insensitive, but I'd always wondered when/how it would happen.  That guy was really cool, though.  I'm sorry for his family.  :(

Nah it was a sting ray... There has only ever been 3 attacks in Australia that were deadly. They are not usually violent, but it must of felt threatened by Steve.

It was a very touching experience watching him in an interview with Larry King.  I just loved to hear him speak.  He lived excitement and wonder and appreciation of nature!

It is so sad, he was great.  And I thought it was sweet that he clearly loved his kids so much, that was nice to see.  But, if you're going to go, that's how I'd like to do it, doing something that I love.

It really is a loss, he did a great job.

I heard that the stingray had suddenly felt startled by the camera guy not by Steve :( Such a  shame :(

Here is a link to one of the better written articles I have read about this.  After having read them all it sounds like he got too close and the stingray felt boxed in by Steve and his cameraman.  It did what any cornered animal would do and took the fight or flight stance and struck.

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,20349888-2,00.html

In my opinion the man was fantastic.  I couldn't wait to watch the next show and would make sure I could see every episode.  Though like most people I agree that what he did for a living was kinda crazy, he opened the world of wildlife to millions of people worldwide.  The efforts he has made to help preserve wildlife and educate us about it will never be reached again.  I am deeply saddened by his death, and send my most heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

Just a few times in our lives, someone touches our hearts and their impact is felt long after they're gone.

Steve Irwin was one of those people.

Still can't believe he's gone :(

I just came across this which says live your life to the fullest and deal with each of life's "stingrays" (Challenges) as they come (not exactly as said but I have a terrible memory. Here it is:
