Remembering Steve Irwin

Posted by Tiki108 at 2/22/2012 11:23:49 AM

Steve Irwin would have been 50 years old today and I think it goes without saying he's very missed.  I'm a little upset that Google is remembering Heinrich Rudolf Hertz, but what can you do.

I'd like to ask you all what your favorite memory of this wonderful man was.

Mine was when he was with the Komodo dragons, I thought that was a great episode, he was so brave running around with them.

And, while I now realize how dumb of a question this is, I asked my boyfriend who grew up in Australia if he ever met Steve Irwin, he said no, but I realized that's like him asking me if I ever met Jeff Corwin, just because he's from America and had a show on Animal Planet.

I loved Steve Irwin at one point i wanted to be him growing up. I had my bedroom reptile theme with an iguana paintes on the wall and the "reptiles" magazine lettering on the other. Very sad that he is gone i have to say i miss him.

i loved steve irwin's shows.  he came around just when i started getting into herps and his show just threw fuel on the fire

my favorite is when he got bit by a snake in africa and they quickly went through a snake book to see if it was hot.  he was relieved to find out it wasn't

I did not have a favorite episode, I loved them all!  I loved him!  I loved his energy and enthusiasm.  And I loved his and Terri's shared enthusiasm together, they were a perfect match!

There was one episode where he spotted a Green tree python 40 feet away in a tree when he was in a river in Austrailia. He literally jumped into croc infested waters just to get to where it was and funny the Chondro was avidly pissed. If my memory serves me correctly he did get tag almost in the face by the chondro. I will admit after his death the shock rang around the world and I still miss his enthusiams as well.

I loved his energy! He was such a fantastic role model! I hope to see his daughter continue to carry on his legacy.

I loved every episode I ever saw, but this video is one of my favorites:

Jayme, which question are you talking about?  The one about people's favorite memories or me asking my boyfriend?

Animal Planet has been replaying all of his shows lately. I am feel silly watching them when my wife comes in the room (idol worship??) but I won't let her delete them from my DVR.

The best (in my opinion) is the episode on PNG when he comes across a Green Tree Python crawling up a vine and also, same episode, when he is walking through the dry stream bed and a White Lip Python crawls right in front of him. Totally awesome. I think that episode is called "Jungle in the Clouds".

No Lisa referring to the memories of watching his shows. Yea Peter that's the one he jumps in says "Whooa Look at this Beaut right here" White-Lipped Pythons are such awesome snakes I remember when they called them D'Alberts Pythons back in the day.

asking your boyfriend

Ah, yeah didn't think that one through, lol

Kind of random, but Thinkgeek just sent me a notice that 15 years ago was when Dolly became the first successfully cloned mammal.

Man a lot going on today, lol

He was a great man and taught many people about all sorts of species known and unknown and did lots for concervation. I went to Australia Zoo his refuge for lots of great animals. If you go to Australia its worth a visit. I took a nice feeding shot there but not sure how to post it on here.

Gavin, we're hoping to go within the next year or so, my a large portion of my boyfriend's family lives over there still, including his sister, so we want to go visit.

One of my favorite shows was when he was in Florida catching Eastern Diamondbacks. And the episode "Grahme's Revenge" .  Croc Hunter live was never to be missed. In reality, every program was and still is a gift to the world.

All of his shows were great! I watched them constantly when I was younger. However, I really liked the episode where he went to Tazmania and swam with sharks. When he died I was half way across the counrty visiting crappy in-laws. It totally sucked. I was so sad and no one else around me understood what the big deal was. He was such a great person and did so much for all kinds of animals. 

Also his wife wrote a book not long after he died about how they met and built the zoo and everything. It was a really good read.

I confess, I cried when he died and I boo-hooo-ed watching the memorial on TV.  My heart broke for Terri and his kids.

It's definitely worth a visit. The Crocosium or whatever it's called was great. Saw the crocs etc as expected but also am amazing Tiger experience where the keepers was in with them feeding cartons of milk as if they were kittens. Was a top day out but a shame he had passed away the year before.

Steve was my hero. If you asked me what I wanted to be as a kid, I usually responded with either a veterinarian or the crocodile hunter. He was awesome! I was devastated when he died, it took a while to really sink in for me that it was true. At least he went doing what he loved though!

Two things: two days ago, I came home from work to find my boys watching Collision Course, my three year old, who has to have two toys that relate to what ever he's watching (two cars for Cars, ect..) had a talking Steve doll and my cage hook (my wife cleaned it first..) The wee boy also wants to be any character he's watching - so when I walked through the door, I see my little guy with a SI doll and a cage hook, he turns to me and says, "daddy, I want to be like him!" - if I had a heart vice the little lump of coal or if I cried at all, I would have...

Secondly, that night was boa feeding night - I was letting one of the girls slide out of her cage to the floor, as I scooped her up, I hit my head on my book shelf, Steve and Me fell off and bonked me on the head...
