I suspect that this bloke's knowledge of Australian wildlife could have been inscribed on the head of a pin. And now his young daughter is being groomed as his replacement. This is child abuse at its worst.

That was a great show, it was enjoyed around the world.
But I always say , if you play with fire your likely to get burned.

At least he lived his young life to the fullest, amazing performance. One of a kind.

We certainly wouldn't want to be infested by any more like him.

Wish more Australians were like Steve Irwin. Passion for living. A great man who made a difference and someone the world still grieves for. Instead the Aussie today is more like Julian Assange. Arrogant self indulgent and antiamerican.

leave steve Irwin alone.. he was good.. his undoing was just getting to much in reptiles/animals faces.. never been to the zoo. I hear its expensive. seen crocodiles before so no big deal.. long time ago the largest one was in cairns zoo. always had 1 eye on ya.. creepy.
