What a shock this was to read. I had always been positive I'd read that Steve Irwin had died in the jaws of a croc, but to read about a stingray bite taking his life. Man, that is just bogus.
Remember about 3 years ago when he fed the crocs whilst holding his baby Bob in his arms? How the whole internet was agog at this brazen lack of 'good' parenting skills, like any of us knew a damn thing about crocs. Poor guy was vilified for being so loose and foolhardy with his baby. The baby that now outlives his father.
I loved to watch him on TV, but I have to admit, when he picked up really dangerous poisoneous snakes and bugs and things, I cringed. Because, as I have noted many times, I. Am. A. Chicken.
Which is funny in a way, because I read that Steve Irwin had a lifelong fear of parrots. The guy had no trouble with crocs and other reptiles, but was afraid of birds? You gotta wonder!
