Crocodile Hunter Dies at 44

Steve Irwin, the hugely popular Australian television personality and conservationist known as the “Crocodile Hunter,” was killed Monday by a stingray while filming off the Great Barrier Reef. He was 44.

I didn't know Steve Irwin personally. But this news made me sad just the same. I'd watched his program with the kids many times. His tv style was interesting, amusing, funny, all while being incredibly educational. The kids and I learned a lot together watching the madcap Steve on his adventures.

My personal condolences to his wife and children.

  1. It is a sad day... he had so much more to give the world, and that was cut short in the prime of his life.

  2. I always wanted to be that brave and indestructable. How life corrects fallacy. Life is fragile to all of us.

  3. So incredibly sad. I just couldn't believe it.
    I still can't believe what is going on in my life now either. It's like a fucking nightmare.
    I am so sad Jimmy.
