I've watched quite a few of his videos.....pretty escentric at times, but I really feel he was a good guy:(

I agree! I laughed at him more than once, wondering why he had not got more seriously hurt before now. I don't have his kind of acorns, to do what he did!

The irony is that he has dealt with killer crocs and deadly snakes his entire life and gets killed by a stingray!!! I always thought I would hear that he got bitten by a cobra in the midle of the jungle or a croc grabbed him or something. A stingray took down this legend.....tragedy nonetheless.

He died doing what he loved to do. Can we say the same thing??

:rolleyes:

I'd probably rather die doing something I hate, at least then it would be over with...

Shocking news. I loved that guy! :(

Wow. Our whole family loves watching this guy do his stuff. He certainly lived live to the fullest.

I was very saddened to hear this. I really liked watching his videos/shows. He scared the crap out of me with the snake shows.

I heard that this was only the third fatal incident involving a sting ray during this century. He should be an inspiration to us all as he figured out a way to do exactly what he loved doing and to make a good living doing it.

I only hope that his infectious passion for conservation and respect for life will be carried on posthumously.

Sad day in my book. I hope the American media will drop the discussion of the day he held his child with him in the croc tank. Scary to see, but with his expertise I am sure traveling with a child in the car is in reality much more dangerous...

Well said Jw. We should all be so lucky to live the life he's had.

Damn the bad luck.

I was surprised that he made it as far as he did. I really enjoyed watching his shows. RIP Steve

A year ago today Steve Irwin died. Animal planet has a special program on him tonight at 8 pm and it's supposed to be part of what he was filming when he died!!!
