The amount of news time this story is getting is quite amazing. Hearing how he was a savvy businessman, the millions he made being spent on Australia Zoo and other animal conservation projects.

He was not wrestling with the stingray, but was filming a segment for his young daughter Bindi's upcoming TV show. He swam over the stingray and was subsequently stung.

By all accounts, Bindi will one day follow in her father's footsteps.

This is sad news indeed. I have always loved the man and his work. A true animal he was!

Just found out about this barely a minute ago. I always joked that Steve Irwin's antics were going to get him killed, but now that it's happened, I feel a bit sad, and even, surprised, as odd as that sounds. Though he took numerous dumb risks, I do admire and appreciate the passion he had for animals, especially maligned ones like crocodiles and such. He provided a useful educational service to his viewers, and he died as he lived---how many people can confidently say they'll probably die doing exactly what they love most? (Even though not having to die at all is better...)

And, in terms of personality and actually knowing about critters, he was a billion lightyears ahead of that "Grizzly Man" retard.

With a healthy ego the likes that Steve Irwin had, I am willing too bet that his name will stay in the minds of a lot of people for a very long time.

I join the whole world in mourning the loss of a great man.

It's the way he died that is most intriguing. I won't be surpised if it's a snake bite. In my country, the barbed tail of a giant stingray is believed to have magical properties. They are used by shamans to ward off evil spirits.

When I first heard about it on another newsgroup, I thought it was a joke. But sadly, all the news channels said differently.

I always enjoyed watching his show, especially back when I was keeping reptiles myself. Every now and then I'd pick up a new tip from the Croc Hunter, which was greatly appreciated when I'd have to handle a fiesty snake or catch a wild one that was menacing the neighborhood.

He was far more animated than other nature show hosts I'd seen before, and certainly raised the bar. I admired him both for his knowledge in his field and his showmanship.

His death did not shock me, but the manner in which he died certainly did. Like many people, I always expected him to go out with a venom bite or something of that sort. When I heard he died in the water, the first thing I thought was "saltwater croc". I would have never in my wildest dreams expected it to happen while swimming with stingrays.

I think his death may serve as a reminder that anything can happen. While I have no doubt that Mr. Irwin was extremely well qualified in his field, I think this tragedy might be a bit of a reality check for some of the more wreckless (and obviously less experienced) daredevils I've seen gracing the television screen lately.

This is indeed sad news. Steve Irwin was one of the most passionate people alive. Though he was a little over-the-top in his performances on television, he did spark an interest in animals in the minds of otherwise dull people.

He has achieved immortality in a way that few can rival. He will be missed....

i was very saddened to hear about the untimely death of steve- i am not normally the type of person to be sentimental about people who i don't know, but i have to say that i was stunned when i heard the news as i had a lot of respect for the guy.
it does seem like a terrible waste, but he has left a magnificent legacy- his conservation work will continue in the hands of others (there will no doubt be a 'steve irwin trust') and he has educated many people about wildlife and conservation in the way only he could. his enthusiastic style was unique and compelling, and i'm sure he will be remembered for many years to come.
hail steve irwin!

I just read about this before coming online here. Though I am not a huge fan of his work, I do like what he did. He was a unique individual who loved what he did, I'm sad that he's gone.

Steve Irwin got what he deserved, there are ways to document animals without going up and grabbing them by the tail. It isn't helpful, it's disrespectful.

The fact that he was stung in the chest is rare, so of course one does wonder how exactly this occurred.




He was probably handling it.
