yeah Jeren has the DVD with him in it with the Wiggles. He really liked him. It is sad I feel really bad for he babies though. but at least they got to know him and all. It is so sad. I mean honestly he was I thought crazy for playing with wild things like that but it was neat at teh same time. A sting ray man that sucks WhenI heard he died ( a friend called and told me ) I was like damn one of the crocs finally got .she said no. I said snake? no.. a sting ray I was like wtf? so yeah I was very very shocked.

sad day :sad:

I have no problem with videos of deaths being released.

That said - I don't know what he was doing in the water at the time - but Sting-rays are while deadly - not necessariliy something any normal diver would be that worried about - so I don't think he was doing anything foolish. My father has shared the water with prolly as many Sting - Rays as Mr. Irwin had - just dumb luck. Or rather the lack of it in this case.

yup. death sucks.

He was doing a documentary on the animals in that water, from what I heard on the news.

Man thats sad news indeed. The guy really made wildlife shows not boring and he really knew alot. I used to watch his show with the wife alot.

Standing over rattlesnake dens in mountains of VA to bagging up black and green mamba snakes all you could think was "man this guy is fukn crazy" as the snakes are spitting poison on him and shit and hes sitting there telling it "you alright mate, you alright"

I to thought if anything, it wouldve been a deadly snake or croc that would do him in.

Great entertainer, great dad, tremendous in supporting wildlife and working with zoos etc.. a real shame.

Is there a more honorable way to die? Doing what you love, your purpose?

The world will mourn his passing. At least I know I will.
