Not sure how well known The Croc Hunter is outside of Aus, Steve Irwin died today in a freak accident with a sting Ray . He has done heaps   for our environment and reptile research, I am sure he will be missed.

Yep, what a shock. Used to watch him often here in the USA, on the animal channel.

Personally I did not like him, however until this morning I didn't realize the impact of this individual.
I judged him wrong. R.I.P. Steve Irwin

He was well loved in the US.  We are going to miss him, the kids especially.  My best friend's 10 year old granddaughter dressed as "The Crocodile Hunter" last halloween.  One of my other friend's husband and young son used to have a standing "date" to watch his show -- it was their favorite show and nothing interferred with them getting to watch it.  Kids here just LOVED him!!  It is a terrible loss for the world and I feel great sympathy for his family.

I feel for his family and Australia. He was a good man. I liked his show and thought he was nuts for getting into water with crocodiles.

It is funny when a celebrity dies and you feel like someone you know died.  I have been watching the news about it today.  How sad.  However he seems to have died doing something he loved to do;working with animals and being with them.  I hope his family is alright and can make it without him. I bet he landed at the Pearly Gates with the word "Crikey" on his lips.
