Yeah but incredible heat, flies, scorpions not to mention spiders and snakes so venomous they can kill an entire family by biting one person!


.Gold never comes easy.............


.:tex:
The only time I ever saw Steve Irwin sweat was when an Australian snake came up to him and licked his nose...he called it the "deadly" snake if I recall correctly, and he wouldn't pick it up. The only snake that I know of that he didn't even attempt to pick up because it was so ornery and venomous.

I believe the would be the Common Brown Snake of Australia.

I remember that event.

The deadliest snake in the whole joint eeeased up and s-l-o-w-l-y stroked along Irwin's face. Jeebus.

Go to the 2:40 mark and try not to pee yourself:


Yes! The "fierce" snake. That's it. The ONLY snake I never saw Steve try to pick up. Ever.

Well... *ahem* I clocked a buzzer with my Swiss Army knife, grabbed him while he was stunned.

Took him by the head and tail and spun him around. Whip-cracked his head off. Only did this once.

None of Irwin's fans thought anything other than a croc or snake would get him...but the lowly stingray did the job!
Lowly stingray?

I've seen those while surfing, when the water is clear, they'll swim inches below your board. I can tell you, lowly, they are not. Luckily, while surfing, peeing in your pants isn't a big deal.

Meaning, the perceived least threat out of snakes, crocs, sharks, etc.

Yeah, I hear you. I didn't watch the video of it but I heard the stingray stuck him right in the heart. Had it got him in the leg or the arm he probably would have lived through it.

I watched some of his other videos. And yes, I was scared half to death just watching them from my living room. A very brave soul, my he RIP.
