>Steve Irwin, the hugely popular Australian television personality and conservationist known as the “Crocodile Hunter,” was killed Monday by a stingray while filming off the Great Barrier Reef. He was 44.
I hadn’t tuned in for a while, but I used to love watching his show because this guy was nuts. There was no one else like him. He was just so excited about all the gnarly animals out there. Let’s hope he’s looking down at us all to see just how many people enjoyed his work.
