Crikey, what a beauty!!!
Crikey...injecting a much needed shot in the arm of nature documentaries, Steve Irwin has burst onto the scene like crazed bandicoot. Steve Irwin and his lovely wife Terri head into the bush every week and traumatize innocent forest creatures to the great amusement of the television audience. Steve's hands-on approach to zoology is highly entertaining to watch, while at the same time informative. Granted, steve is a diesel mechanic, and holds no degree of any kind in biology. What he does have is a lifetime of experience with animals and utterly no regard for his own personal safety. "Watch now as I stick my head in this snake infested burrow...crikey, it bit my eye! No worries..." It's as much comedy as it is science. Steve Irwin is the Lee Majors of nature show hosts. I truly believe that Steve Irwin could defeat any land animal in hand to hand combat...including Rowdy Roddy Piper. If any one person is guaranteed of having their grisly demise captured on film, it's Steve Irwin. But until that dark day, we will continue to watch, dumfounded, the Crocodile Hunter. Peace.
