I recently saw an episode of "The Croc. Hunter" that I had never seen before. It was sort of a "best-of" show with old clips from over the years. A lot of personal stuff with him & Terry. He was talking in an interview setting about why he is so enthusiastic and has to "get right in there" and up-close with the animals.
His message was pretty good IMO. He explained that he wants to show people the animals close up...to get us into their world. He says he wants to spread awareness of the animals and that the ultimate goal is conservation. He wants his passion and enthusiasm to be remembered by the conservation of the habitats and animals that he is so passionate about.
Also, his show is more entertaining than 95% of the crap on TV anyway so good for him.
If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist, it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.
