I am really sorry about your grandmother

Even today the death of Steve feels like it's a dream. He really was a good person.

Everytime I see the headline "Steve Irwin Killed" I just can't comprehend it...I can't believe he's actually no longer with us physically...

Im still in shock and very saddened by it all, especially as all the papers have pictures of him today, which makes it hit home even more. I dont think i can bring myself to watch the repeats of his shows or the video i shot of him when i met him,in fact i think i need to destroy it, because if im ever tempted to watch it i know how emotional ill get.

Watching the biography of him last night, and seeing his excitement at the birth of his first child just made me so's truly terrible that a lot of us got to see more of him than they ever will get the opportunity to (does that make sense?)

You felt that what you saw on TV was the real person. No matter how you might chuckle at his over-the-top antics, you could tell that he was 100% passionate about animals and that he loved them. You can't help but admire that kind of dedication.

How very sad for his wife and young children.
It was clear that he loved life, his family, and was very genuine . Am also very saddened to hear this news.

I watched his Croc shows on National Geographic. RIP Croc Hunter. You could tell he was passionate and real about animals, even if you may disagree with his methods.

I guess he did have the kind of job that put his life at risk but's a surprise to see he's dead. Local newspaper says he held snakes, scorpios etc...and never got stung. Sting rays apparently aren't lethal per se except this particular one got him straight into the heart.

I hope they don't release the video of it happening...perhaps some comfort in that it was probably over quick and he died doing what he loved to do. 44 is way to early to go.

I'd take anything reported by contactmusic with a huge grain of salt

Perhaps U2 will play Elton John's "Crocodile Rock" as a tribute while they are in Australia.

Apparently there are plans to discuss with the family the idea of releasing the video.

I really hope they don't.

You know, he just seemed kind of invincible somehow, even with all the dangerous stuff he did. He never seemed to get seriously hurt. I just kind of thought he'd live to be 90 telling his grandkids about all the amazing crazy things he did. This is so sad.

In my attempt to be positive today I was thinking 44 is definitely young, but he had a good life. had a great family, did something to contribute the environment, touched a lot of people, helped a lot of animals, educated who knows how many people, directed a zoo, traveled the world, escaped death who knows how many times, made money doing something good and that he loved..I mean jeez the guy packed as much life into those 44 years as he possibly could, did more than most people will ever do in a lifetime.
