I cannot agreed with you BW Smith on some parts. I saw many times Steve Irwin's show and i believe that he is doing a very good job. What people can or want to understand from what he offers is their problem and their responsibility. If children saw 10 episodes of Croc Hunter and go to a dealer to buy hot snakes then Steve Irwin is not responsible neither kids. If the herp dealer wants to make money and do not respect his own job by selling hots to kids then THEY are responsible for the future banning in venomous snakes. In this point i can only agree that Steve Irwin don't handle the snakes properly and this is a bad example for others that see him, especialy children. Like you said, "Education is the key" and "Herp community has many enemies and few allies."
The fear leads to death as the window to the courtyard...JUMP!
