The Unforgettable Crocodile Hunter

Yesterday night I was watching Nat Geo and they were telecasting old videos of Crocodile Hunter.... Steve Irwin. Most people do remember him as Crocodile Hunter only. Mostly because of his heroic action in front of dangerous reptiles and his enthusiasm made him popular in a very short duration.

The reason behind me writing about him is yesterday's show only. He died almost two and a half years ago and I don't know about others, but at least for me when ever i watch his show in the TV, I feel very sad that he is no longer with us. In yday's show, he was as usual daring and full of energy and the way he was handling those reptiles were as if like they are all his babies...
In the middle of the Australian jungle, he found a snake and as per his words, it is one of the most poisonous snake and it can lift its head to certain height and move as quick as possible to hit its prey. When I saw the way he took that snake in his hand really made my hair stand.

After seeing this only one thought came in my mind, How can he get killed by a fish ??
Stingray which is the culprit for his death doesn't attack on human beings and death caused by its sting is very rare. For anyone who heard about his death and the cause behind it, for sure felt amazed by this freakish incident. He has done many controversial stunts and the whole world knows he is famous for handling dangerous creatures.
But his death was so sudden and shocking... even he himself wouldn't have imagined. His death at the age of 44 is not the age to die and I also feel he didn't deserve this death.
He is a great personality, most loved, admired animal lover and care taker, I would like to dedicate this post for 'Crocodile Hunter' and for all his great work he did during his life time.
