Steve Irwin

Moonee Valley City
Victoria, Australia
Death: Sep. 4, 2006
Port Douglas
Cairns Region
Queensland, Australia

Television Show Host, Conservationist. Born in Essendon, Melbourne, Australia, he became known world wide as the "Crocodile Hunter" on various television shows and in his home land of Australia and known for the saying "Crikey." He was in the midst of filming an underwater documentary off the coast of Port Douglas, Queensland, when he passed away. His parents, Bob and Lyn, sparked his interest in exotic animals while they ran the "Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park," and it was then, as a nine-year-old boy that Steve Irwin began catching crocodiles. He took over the reptile park in 1991 renaming it "Australia Zoo." (bio by: Just another taphophile)
