    Damn, what a shame. Top bloke. Fell sorry for his wife and kids. They seemed so happy and loved their life.

    One of my favs was when he was after Komodo Dragons, those huge lizards. He cut his leg and they apparently smell blood very easily and went right after them. Him and the camera man both legged it. Quality entertainment.

    I'll miss him too, he was an annoying sod at times but he certainly did a lot for conservation both for the animals and for getting kids involved. Respect to him, i know i'll probably laugh at the inevitable jokes that will appear soon but not today though. :(
    I'll never forget him running away from a Komodo Dragon and the scene where he crawls into a small hole in some rocks and is over the moon as he find hundreds of Rattlers. Psyche! :)

    edit: Great minds, woohoo!!!

    As i said before - i don't watch his shows but i'm enjoying reading about his madder moments - especially the 'strewth he covered me sunnies' one :)

    The man was clearly a bloody loon, god bless 'im!

    Don't think anyone can deny that the man was fully committed to what he did, and did it with a passion most of us probably couldn't muster.

    Was watching him on the telly just this weekend. More out of what he does than who he is, but this news is a big shock.

    I must admit to being surprised at how sad this news made me. I didn't think I even liked him that much, but when I heard it was a bit of a kick in the guts. Real shame.

    THIS SPACE FOR RENT

    "I love her like I love my wife"

    I wonder what his wife had to say about that :p

    Aw man... Just saw a mini-obituary on Steve, by his best mate - he was in tears when he ended by saying "... as Steve would have said: crocs rock".

    *Sniff*

    Comedy like everything is subjective. If you don't like it, try shutting up and leaving the rest of us to enjoy our moment.

    There is only one other recorded death caused by a stingray, and that was in 1945.

    Except for this one?

    Curse the incorrect information of news programs.

    My thoughts go out to his wife and children.

    I think my favourite Irwin moment was when he was in Africa, and walked into an African tribe village (somewhere in the Sahel I think) to deal with a troublesome deadly cobra of some sort that had been troubling the villagers.

    He just strolled in in traditional Irwin attire, picked up said deadly snake, and walked off with it, his hand round its neck.

    You could just see in the faces of the African tribesmen the thought "These white men are crazy!"

    Whee. Rented out the Crocodile Hunter movie as a partial tribute.

    I hope they do a proper "Best of Steve" on Discovery/Animal Planet, with a bunch of highlights from his career. If they set up a trust fund for Terri, the kids and Australia Zoo, count me in for 20.

    To be fair, I think they did alright out of his career financially. Sad as I am, Not sure they will need our charity.

    At least he died in the most beautiful natural environment on Earth. He also died while doing what he was best at and what he loved. Steve Irwin was a legend and I doubt anyone will forget him. No other man made people tune into watch shows based on nature, people with no other interest in and animal kingdom watched his shows, were entertained and educated at the sametime.

    Scary thing is I watched The Crocodile Hunter Diaries yesterday morning and in the show he was training people to take over from him in his Croc research. Spooky.
