I just saw this myself; quite a shock. Then again, not much of a shock at all. Quoth Steve: "If something ever happens to me, people are gonna be like 'we knew a croc would get him!'" Stingrays don't have quite the rep of crocs (or lions, tigers, bears, etc) but apparently they're not to be underestimated. Looking at this another way, if you make a career out of dealing with dangerous animals, eventually something will get you. Too bad. He was an amazing personality, great fun to watch, and great at raising awareness of the animal kingdom. My heart goes out to his wife and kids.
Huh I just read this bad news and felt shock & very sad...... his documentary shows are amazing, My 3 yr old like him very much. He had lots of energy & passion in his profession. May god rest his soul in peace.
