What is a Stingray ????

Some Quotes of Steve Irwin....

"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 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"

"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".

"Where I live if someone gives you a hug it's from the heart".

"Crikey, mate. You're far safer dealing with crocodiles and western diamondback rattlesnakes than the executives and the producers and all those sharks in the big MGM building".

  • Sikhi Seeker,

    I'm glad that you feel that way. I mean not the annoying part, but the great work he did.
