Crocodile Hunter

Normally celebrity deaths don't impact me at all. Not so with Steve Irwin's death. It actually got to me. The Crocodile Hunter, dead? He was one of those guys that really inspired me when it came to animals (especially the ugly ones).

He seemed like a real nice guy, and a family man. It is amazing that it was a sting ray that killed him, not one of the countless crocs or vipers or spiders that he handled and grappled with. The one consolation is that he died doing what he loved.

Thanks for all the work you did, and for bringing us goofy images like this. Ugly animals the world over owe you a debt.
