"Crikey! Lookit the size of that one, mate! AGH!!!!!" [CROAK]
The world now has a little less color, as Steve "Crocodile Hunter" Irwin goes to that great croc huntin' preserve in the sky... killed by one of his beloved Australian critters, of course. I suppose that's like a biker getting killed in a motorcycle accident, or a mountain climber getting killed in a mountain climbing accident, etc. Ya don't wanna go, but if ya gotta go...

Go out doing what you love to do, not in a nursing home on a bed pan.

I was shocked when I heard that this morning, but he did go doing what he loved. I've always admired his bravery, and he brought an awareness and education of our animal kingdom to a whole generation. Can anyone fill his shoes? I seriously doubt it.

Yeah, it was too soon, but at least it was doing the work he excelled at with the creatures he enjoyed hunting. I wonder if his children will grow up to be croc hunters? I think he was teaching them the art.

Sort of weird that sting rays are not normaly lethal. The barb pearced his heart. On the radio this morning they said that the video actually showed him pulling the barb out.

I am a black and white and yellow multicolored penguin making his way as best he can in a world of monochromic monkeys.
