It has been exactly a year ago today when Steve Irwin — the world’s most famous crocodile hunter — died of a diving accident. I remember it was a shock to me when I first found out about his death. I was channel surfing that day (yes I do this a lot) when I happened to catch a public announcement on Animal Planet about Steve’s death. I couldn’t believe it at first. But when every major news channel on TV reported it, I finally realized that it was true. The Crocodile Hunter was dead. I’m not exactly a fan of Steve Irwin but I do admire him. I watched his show once in a while because he used to amuse me as he was always so hyper and overexcited. He introduced a whole new approach to what could have been a boring TV program on wildlife conservation and such. He was so energetic and full of life. He is surely missed by millions of fans around the world.
