The Crocodile Hunter

Sad news today - the Crocodile Hunter is dead. Long live the Crocodile Hunter!

Steve Irwin, the famously crazy reptile hunter who, with his wife Terri created the show the Crocodile Hunter series that eventually had a viewership of around 200 million, was diving off the north-east coast, on Batt Reef off Port Douglas, when he was killed by a barb of a stringray...

I mean, yikes! This guy was always seen tackling crocs and snakes, getting his face as close to their most dangerous parts, and just after near death situations, would always be heard shouting "Crikey!"

He was such an awesome personality, though a little controversial at times, but will definitely be missed.
Here's a little vid in his memory...
