Noooooo!
Steve Irwin "The Crocodile Hunter" has died! I was always amazed at how that guy had never been maimed by the crocs or bitten by a rattler, looks like he was done in by a stingray. News reports say he was pierced through the chest by the stinger. I imagine there's potent poison in Australian stingrays. Guess he died doing what he loved...

Hello Jeff. I'm from Australia, and can I just say it is like we all lost someone we were really good freinds with. It's weird. The country is in mourning. Thanks for your post.

I love your art work.

What a "nasty little sheila" that little sting ray is. I am soooooooooo frickin' in mourning. Had many drinks in honor of him last night. I can believe he was done in by a fish!

Hi Jeff, I'm from australia too. Everyone's in shock over Steve's death. He did so much great stuff for the conservation of wildlife over here, specially making people aware that snakes and crocs are part of wildlife & should be protected too. Tragic.
Anyway, love your work, you're one of my faves. Right up there at the top of the faves list infact!
Thanks for your blog :)

Heyy Jeff your work is just amazing and it really rocks,, it's good to share stuff like this.
The blog for Steve Irwin in his honour is a nice thing to be put up,,he was indeed a great personality and a lovable human being with the way he used to deal with animals,,losing him is indeed a big loss to mankind and nature too as in this phase of environment degradation we need people who can take care of the nature in their own possible way which Steve did quite well.Steve just rocked it!!!
