What do you Americans really think of Steve Irwin?

Just wondering, cos the guy really is an idiot. I haven't seen much of his stuff as I dont really care for crocodiles either way and I think all snakes and spiders should be killed...But I was just watching him on Conan and I dont think he really knew what to think of him. I dont think he actually knew what he was saying half the time.

Is he really that huge over your way?

I, myself, am a fan of Steve Irwin. I've watched a lot of his shows and the man knows what he's talking about when it comes to animals. His excitement and enthusiasm really comes through (I suppose this is what annoys some people), but I really appreciate it. He obviously loves what he does, and I've heard him say that his goal is to educate people about animals, especially the creepy, slimy, and dangerous ones, and to promote conservation because the animals can't speak for themselves. At a time when animals are going extinct every day, I admire him for raising awareness and concern for animals.

And by the way, I don't think he makes Australia look like a bunch of morons. When you watch his show, he is very knowledgeable about the animals he features, and many of his shows have shown how compassionate Australians are and how beautiful and diverse the country is.

hehe zoolanda.
That is true heartland about his knowledge. Its all good what he does too. I was pleased to hear all the money he makes off his show and the new movie go back into conservation funds etc. And I have to admit he was pretty funny on the show earlier, I just hope he doesn't end up the next Dundee.
Cos we all need another one dont we?

Steve Irwin is our biggest export next to Fosters beer. He is this squat little crocodile hunter man who doesn't hunt them. Just does a Rex Hunt with them and stuff. He likes anything that can kill you basically. He is very ocker, loud, typical stereotype of the outback Australian man. Which doesn't exist by the way.
Why, you looking for a new man Screamer?

Is he the one who always does stuff like sticking his head in a crocodiles mouth, and then yells "WHOA THAT WAS CLOSE!!"


If so... I've always wanted to ask him what he expected when he did that, of course it is.

That is so true! "Aww gee, he's a bit mad now! If I just nudge him with this really large stick, he might go me!...oh yeah he did! Didn't like that much eh!"

Screamer. You kill me.

Stop it.

Please.

Personally, I think he's pretty great. His show is funny, kids love it and it raises awareness about animals most people just don't care about. I also think there's something special about someone who OBVIOUSLY loves what he does. And have you heard him talk about his wedding and the birth of his daughter? It's pretty sweet. WHAT A BEAUTIE!

Obviously you've never watched his show. Irwin does not intentionally provoke any animal. He even explains all the time that stress can kill crocodiles, and he only handles them when their lives are in danger and/or they need to be moved to a different, safer place.

Man, this makes me mad! I really think Steve Irwin does a lot of good things, and if people had ever really watched his show, they'd understand that. Seriously, if you don't know what he's about, watch his show. You might learn something.
