THE end Steve Irwin got too close. The wildlife champion
and television personality, known around the world
as the Crocodile Hunter, died just after 11am yesterday
in front of the cameras when a stingray's barb pierced
his heart as he swam over Batt Reef, off the coast
of Port Douglas in far north Queensland.
his millions of fans, most would have imagined his
death by crocodile jaws or poisonous snake, not swimming
in a Barrier Reef lagoon, or away from his family
- his wife, Terri, and young children, Bindi and Bob
- who were flying by private plane to Maroochydore
last night from the Tasmanian wilderness, where they
had been on a trekking holiday.
fellow documentary maker Ben Cropp revealed that footage
shows Irwin swimming alongside a large smooth stingray,
also known as a bull ray, in less than two metres
of water, while a cameraman from his production company
swims in front to film him for a new TV wildlife series.
warning, the ray, usually regarded as a placid creature
towards humans, stops, turns and lashes out, spearing
Irwin in the chest with one of the knife-like barbs
at the end of its tail - an action like a paring knife
creating "a terrific tearing of flesh",
said Bryan Fry, of the University of Melbourne's Australian
venom research unit.
was not known last night whether Irwin, 44, died of
a heart attack, blood loss from the wound, venom from
the ray or a combination of all three. It was only
the third known death by stingray in Australia.
news sparked a frenzy of tributes from around the
world for a man considered an Australian folk hero.
Early this morning, the Herald's website had logged
close to 2000 tributes from readers.

wanted to know the truth before the bullshit got out,"
Cropp said. "I can picture it happening; the
ray must have felt threatened. Mostly they get spooked
and swim off but in this case it stops, swings and
jabs upward with its tail. It can lash a metre or
more. Steve must have been in a vulnerable position.
He probably got too close. "Do I think he was
irresponsible? No, he was unlucky. I know because
I've done it myself, but in my case the ray missed

you are middle-aged and at the peak of prosperity.
for Steve Irwin, the self-proclaimed, internationally
feted "Crocodile Hunter", it came in a manner
nobody would have expected - in azure seas and from
the barb of a stingray, not in a muddy estuary in
the jaws of a five-metre saltwater crocodile.
had often talked about the immediacy of a croc attack.
You'd have next-to-no chance, he would warn, wide-eyed
and all golly-gosh as if he was reading a scary bedtime
story. "Because when they strike it can be that
quick that if they're within range, you're dead, you're
dead in your tracks!"
if he was reporting his own death, Irwin's prose typically
would be peppered with the vernacular that made the
Melbourne-born naturalist (and natural show-off) instantly
recognisable and parodied wide and far, from his home
at Queensland's Noosa Heads to many parts of the globe.
"Crikey! Irwin's copped a barb in the chest and
the thing just ripped him apart like a tin-opener
opening a can! Gee whiz, will ya look at that?! That
dasyatid! That beautiful, sleek little baby with its
lethal stinger. Blimey, that's sharp!"
there anything wild that Steve Irwin couldn't fall
in love with? Wasn't gobsmacked by, wasn't wanting
to cradle, to get alongside, to understand, to protect?

boy sans loincloth who could commune with nature.
have no fear of losing my life," Irwin once claimed.
"If I have to save a koala or a crocodile or
a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it."
And you knew he was for real. Irwin was a fair dinkum
Crocodile Dundee without the fake tan or the
facelift. He epitomised the legend of the Aussie bushman:
resourceful, savvy and a bit rough around the edges.
But he was generous to a fault, and a showman, too,
in a way that left his audiences in awe and feeling
just a wee bit inferior.
you see on TV is pretty much what you get," said
his long-time best mate, fellow zoo worker Wes Mannion,
when Irwin had become a household name. "He's
not quite as excitable, maybe, but he's always got
that drive. If we have to dig a hole, he doesn't go
over and just dig a hole, he goes over and says 'Right!
We're gonna dig a hole!' Then he's flat out diggin'
was larger than life. More than 500 million people
knew of him. His programs screened in more than 130
countries. In anyone's hyperbole, that's a lot. He
was a self-promoter par excellence, but he had plenty
to promote - a stratospheric self- confidence, a love
of life, an adventurer's spirit and a cheekiness that
opened the doors of movers and shakers, from cabinet
ministers to film producers, from Capitol Hill to
a tour of America he was interviewed more than 1000
times: on Late Night with Conan O'Brien he wrestled
an inflatable crocodile in a children's wading pool,
and after appearing on another late-night program
he was such a hit he was chased by fans through Manhattan.
Police had to be called.
fact, he provided the perfect chat-show fodder: Irwin
had eyebrow-raising tales by the truckload. "Anyone
who gets their very own scrub python for their sixth
birthday would have some tales to tell and Steve has
plenty!" Irwin's own website trumpeted proudly.
"While most other children were opening cans
of pet food for their cats or dogs, Steve was out
catching fish and hunting rodents to feed to his crocodiles

however, where the greatest danger in the backyard
is colliding with the Hills hoist while playing kick-to-kick.
From his birthplace, Stephen Robert Irwin moved to
Queensland with his nature-loving parents when he
was very young. Bob and Lyn Irwin started the Beerwah
Reptile Park, which was taken over by 29-year-old
Steve in 1991 and renamed Australia Zoo.
met his Oregon-born wife, Terri Raines, the following
year, married soon after and went crocodile trapping
on their honeymoon, complete with film crew. The adventure
formed the basis in 1992 of the first episode of The
Crocodile Hunter, their successful television series,
which was underpinned by their expanding and successful
zoo with an array of native animals as well as elephants,
tigers and a cheetah. It was no longer just the Steve
Irwin Show but a double act, with Terri playing the
straight role. Irwin's autobiography was later sub-titled
The Incredible Life and Adventures of Steve and Terri
Irwin. Theirs was a celluloid blend of National Geographic
magazine and What Will they Think of Next?, but despite
the double billing there was no doubting who the star
pair ended up making almost 50 hour-long documentaries,
which appeared on cable TV channel Animal Planet and
won a worldwide audience. There were also 50-plus
episodes of his follow-up series, Croc Files. Irwin's
manager, John Stainton, summed up the the style of
the presenter with the blond mop: "A lot of people
presenting television just look at the lens. They
talk to the glass. But Steve has a unique ability

successful, because he almost jumps into your lounge
in 2001, Irwin bobbed up in Dr. Dolittle 2 in a cameo
role alongside Eddie Murphy, and a year later the
Irwins played themselves in The Crocodile Hunter:
Collision Course, in which the pair, naturally, hunt
crocodiles - while fending off rogue CIA agents and
saving the world.
money didn't appear to be a motivation, with the Irwins
recycling the proceeds of many of their commercial
successes into conservation. Of Hollywood, Irwin remained
suspicious. Of his movie-making experiences, he said:
"MGM bought me 22 new safari suits for a start.
But really, I steered clear of the joint. Where I
live, if someone gives you a hug it's from the heart.
I've had these blokes in Hollywood hug me trying to
make out I'm their friend and as soon as I turn
they take out a big bunch of knives and stab me in
the back. I feel sorry for these people because they
are so shallow." Asked, famously, about his millions,
Irwin said in 2002: "There's no more money in
my bank. People say to me: 'Paul Hogan built a $12
million mansion in Hollywood - I suppose you'll be
doing the same?' I just say, 'No way, mate.' "
straight talk was a little too blunt for some, however,
and when he found himself accused of putting the life
of his infant son in danger in January 2004, there
were plenty baying for Irwin's blood. Khaki-clad,
he had been feeding a chicken carcass to crocodiles
at his zoo with one-month-old Bob tucked under his
arm. Footage of the incident was screened on TV news
defended his action, claiming he had been in total
control throughout the incident. But his image took
a knock, with Queensland's Department of Family Services
reprimanding him and a reported cooling between the
Irwins and some of their documentary backers. Ultimately,
Irwin conceded that he would not repeat the episode
but his unconventional parenting was often a talking
point. In a recent interview he spoke about how he
allowed his eight-year-old daughter, Bindi, to kick
Bob (now two) - as long as she took her shoes off
first. "That way, she gets to whack him and he
doesn't get hurt," he said. "That's a compromise.
was also in hot water later in 2004 when he was accused
of disturbing whales, seals and penguins while filming
in Antarctica, charges that he also denied.
the controversies, the preservation of wildlife was
his raison d'etre. Only recently, he attached his
name to a wildlife protection group that launched
a legal challenge to Tasmanian plans to shoot wallabies
and pademelons. And when real-life crocodile hunters
clamoured for a part in the Northern Territory's annual
crocodile cull, Irwin escorted the Environment Minister,
Ian Campbell, around Cape York to convince him that
"trophy hunting" would send the wrong message
and would put international tourism at risk.
the end of the day, nearly everybody had a good word
for Steve Irwin, from local tourists to international
celebrities. Recalling his visit to the Irwins' zoo,
singer Justin Timberlake recalled this month: "I
know he got a lot of flak [in 2004], but there's something
in that dude's blood, he's like one of those animals.
It's crazy, the communication he has with those animals.
He's like Dr Dolittle, for real."

Robert "Steve" Irwin (22 February 1962 -
04 September 2006 born in Essendon, Victoria, Australia)
is the owner and manager of the Australia Zoo at Beerwah,
Queensland, Australia. He is best known as The Crocodile
Hunter, which is the name of the unconventional nature
documentary series on television he hosts, assisted
by his American-born wife, Terri Irwin. His larger-than-life
persona and seemingly outrageous antics (including
the close handling of both common and rare species
of wildlife and, perhaps most famously, the capture
of live crocodiles and other reptiles on-screen) are
key features in the presentation, which provides a
forum for educational information about wildlife conservation
and conflicts with humans in various parts of the
world. The program has made the Irwins television
personalities on several continents.
Irwin was killed after being stabbed by a stingray
in the Batt Reef, near Cairns in Australia.
in the Melbourne area, Steve Irwin moved with his
parents as a child to Queensland. His parents, Bob
and Lyn, ran the small Queensland Reptile and Fauna
Park, where Steve grew up around crocodiles and other
reptiles. He became a crocodile trapper, removing
crocodiles from near populated areas, performing the
service for free with the quid pro quo that he kept
them for the park. As a child, he had a negative encounter
with a macaw, and still retains some fear of parrots.
1991, he took over the running of the park, now renamed
the "Australia Zoo", and in 1992 met (at
the park) and married Terri. The footage, shot by
John Stainton, of their crocodile-trapping honeymoon
became the first episode of The Crocodile Hunter,
which became wildly successful in America.
2001, Steve appeared in a cameo role in the Eddie
Murphy film Dr. Dolittle 2. In 2002, his first feature
film, The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course, was
released. In general, reviews of this film were negative.
However, in 2003, Irwin was reportedly in line to
host a chat show on Australian network television.
Irwins have two children: a daughter, Bindi Sue Irwin
(born 24 July 1998), and a son, Robert (Bob) Clarence
Irwin (born 1 December 2003). Their dog, Sui, from
which their daughter's middle name was derived, died
in June 2004.
Steve's expansive leadership, the operations have
grown to include the zoo, the television series, The
Steve Irwin Conservation Foundation, and International
Crocodile Rescue. Improvements to his Australia Zoo
include the Animal Planet Crocoseum, the rainforest
aviary, and Tiger Temple.
controversy arose during a public show on 2 January
2004, when Irwin carried his infant son, Bob, in one
arm while feeding a chicken carcass to a crocodile
with the other hand. The infant was close to the crocodile,
and comparisons were made in the press with Michael
Jackson's dangling of his son outside a German apartment
window. In addition, child welfare groups, animal
rights groups, and many of Irwin's television viewers
criticised his actions as being irresponsible and
tantamount to child abuse. Irwin claimed that any
danger to his son was only a perceived danger and
that he was in complete control of the situation,
and has consistently refused to apologize for his
actions despite considerable public outcry both in
Australia and abroad. His defenders pointed to his
several decades of hands-on experience and direct
interaction with crocodiles. Terri Irwin claimed that
their child was in no more real danger than a child
being taught to swim would be. No charges were filed
(although the police did visit Irwin at his home and
advised him not to repeat the incident).
went on to star in other Animal Planet documentaries,
including The Croc Files, The Crocodile Hunter Diaries,
and New Breed Vets.
June 2004, Irwin again was the subject of controversy
when allegations were made that he came too close
to and disturbed some wildlife (namely whales, seals
and penguins) while filming a documentary in Antarctica.
Interacting with Antarctic wildlife in a disapproved
manner may be a breach of Australian federal and international
laws. Subsequently, the matter was closed without
charges being filed.
Planet then released a Crocodile Hunter special called
"Crocodiles & Controversy", which attempted
to explain both the "Baby Bob Incident"
and the Antarctica incident. This special argues that
Irwin's son was never in danger of being eaten by
the crocodile and that Irwin could not have endangered
animals in Antarctica.
Animal Planet ended The Crocodile Hunter with a series
finale entitled "Steve's Last Adventure".
The last Crocodile Hunter documentary went for three
emotional hours with footage of Steve's across-the-world
adventure, visiting locations like the Himalayas,
the Yangtze River, Borneo, and the Kruger National
January 2006 as part of Australia Week celebrations
in the USA, Steve appeared at the Pauley Pavilion,
UCLA Los Angeles, California. During an interview
on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Steve announced
that Discovery Kids will be developing a show for
his daughter, Bindi Sue. The show, Jungle Girl,
is tipped to be similar to The Wiggles movies, with
songs that surround a story. A feature-length episode
of Australian kids TV show The Wiggles entitled "Wiggly
Safari" appears dedicated to Steve, and he features
in it heavily with his wife and daughter. The show
includes the song "Crocodile Hunter, Big Steve
Saturday June 24, 2006, one of the oldest turtles
living in Steve Irwin's Australian Zoo, died of heart
failure. The turtle, named Harriet, was 176 years
old and was considered part of Irwin's family. Harriet
is thought to have belonged to Charles Darwin.
Irwin is active in politics and is a supporter of
the conservative Liberal Party of Australia. In particular,
he strongly supports the incumbent Prime Minister
