- Me, Myself, and I
- STEPHEN ROBERT IRWIN(1962-2006) RIP
Born on 22nd February 1962 to Lyn and Bob Irwin in Essendon, a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Irwin moved with his parents as a child to Queensland in 1970. Bob Irwin was a reptile enthusiast and when the family moved, Bob and Lyn Irwin started the small Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park, where Steve grew up around crocodiles and other reptiles.
Irwin became involved with the park in a number of ways, including taking part in daily animal feedings, as well as care and maintenance activities. On his sixth birthday he was given a scrub python. He began handling crocodiles at the age of nine, after his father had educated him on reptiles from an early age.
Steve's most famous quote- "CRIKEY"
Sadly Steve Irwin pasted away on he 4th of September 2006 when he was stung by a stingray. This occured whilst he was filming a documentay in the Great Barrier Reef. This page is dedicated to the man who devoted his life to animals.

It was Steve's anniversary on the 4th so im gonna try and update this band(sugestions welcome,put them on my page). New skin by Martin Byers<My-New-Trend> and here are some quotes...
Crikey means gee whiz, wow!
Every cent we earn from Crocodile Hunter goes straight back into conservation. Every single cent.
Herein lies our problem. If we level that much land to grow rice and whatever, then no other animal could live there except for some insect pest species. Which is very unfortunate.
I am optimistic globally. So many scientists are working frantically on the reparation of our planet.
I believe our biggest issue is the same biggest issue that the whole world is facing, and that's habitat destruction.
I get called an adrenaline junkie every other minute, and I'm just fine with that.
I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it.
I've probably saved thousands of peoples' lives with my educational message on snake bites, how to get in around venomous anything.
Since I was a boy, from this house, I was out rescuing crocodiles and snakes. My mum and dad were very passionate about that and, I was lucky enough to go along.
Snakes are just very instinctive to me. I've been playing with snakes since before I could walk. It doesn't matter where or what it is, from the biggest to the most venomous.
Take the crocodile, for example, my favorite animal. There are 23 species. Seventeen of those species are rare or endangered. They're on the way out, no matter what anyone does or says, you know.
That might have a lot to do with it, but you know, I probably don't show fear, but I suffer from fear like everyone else.
When I talk to the camera, mate, it's not like I'm talking to the camera, I'm talking to you because I want to whip you around and plunk you right there with me.
