I think he takes un-needed risks, but interms of conservation, he seems to be doing especially well.

My nephew loves him. It's given him an interest in herps, which is definately a good thing.

i think he can give people in interest that is safer for everyone and the animals though...

I think he's entertaining, but, one of these days he's going to get it from one the critters he plays with.

To be honest, I've never watched the program. My nephew wants to watch some movie that he made though. Fortunately, he will learn respect for animals from me!

i know alot of people like steve irwin, but i have seen him do some REALY stupid things, like on his top 10 deadly snakes video when he got the the #1 ,witch i cant remember but i am going to assume it was a Tipan, he alowed the snake to slither up to him and lick his face, i mean MY GOD! talk about stupid. i personaly like Mark O' Shea and Jeff Corwin the best.

Rob Bredl (barefoot bushman) is my favourite, he explaine s the behaviour of animals so well. Him and his father started Australia's first crocadile farm.

ii dont know much about mark oshea but steve irwin is wwaaaaaaay smarter / more experienced then jeff corwin, jeff corwin is kind of a p*ssy in my eyes. maybe steve will get bit by a deadly snake, but he always has anti-venom and everything prepared. i think steve is great though ive seen atleast 30episodes of his show (not croc diaries the normal one). hes said he would give his life for his crocs and i bet he actually would, i think he has the most respect for animals out of all those 3

I have mixed feelings about Steve Irwin. He takes chances that he shouldn't but he is more enthusiastic than most and he has really promoted reptiles in a good way.

i love him! me and my dad love watching it. He makes watching nature shows more exciting. Now c'mon who likes seeing the deadliest snakes from afar? At least he always mentions "never to do this" obviously i wouldn't but its good to know he doesn't encourage people to do so.

Steve Irwin ROCKS!
