Yeah he had a lot of haters, personally I liked him. His wildlife TV shows were different, in that he got right in there, up close and personal with the animals. He paved the way for many other 'snake wranglers' around the world to start puting out TV shows, Austin Stevens, Jeff Corwin, Mark O'Shea - these all came after Steve.

He'll be sorely missed and Animal Planet will be a whole lot quieter without him.

RIP.

I was gutted when i found out, loved the stuff he did on tv. Changed the mind of millions about 'dangerous' animals.

If you play with fire for a living, sooner or later you're going to get burnt.

Aye, it was pretty inevitable I suppose. Flirt with danger that much, one day its going to back fire.

Still a legend in his own right.

He was very entertaining but it was bound to happen at some point. The only think I had against the guy is that he would hold his tiny baby under his arm and hold of a huge croc with the other, that was just plain wrong!!!

Without trying to sound like I'm taking this wee wee here (cos I'm not) but animal Planets viewing figures are gonna sky rocket now cos I'm 100% certain they'll be showing his programs back to back soon as a tribute.

Oh yeah I know. There will probably be a Steve Irwin week/weekend or something no doubt. They'll make a killing, which is sad in a way. All I meant though, was once they've exhausted all his reruns, no more new material - they'll be off to find the next Steve Irwin.

This isnt the first time he has been attacked though as i recall. i think he was attacked by a deadly snake a while back and almost died then : /

Anyway its very sad to see him go. R.I.P Steve

Just had this text message.......

Steve Irwin when last interviewed was asked what his favourite TV show was in his youth. He replied "Thunderbirds was great but I've always had a special place in my heart for Stingray" :|

He's not even cold yet for crying out loud lol
