This was very sad news.. A guy so full of life, and young, it's a shame to see him go in such a manner after wrestling with crocks all those years. Hope his family will carry on the legacy he began in fighting for the environment and animal rights.. A good guy, and he'll be missed as he always brought a smile and some interesting animal facts..

Luffy - Yes, it was recorded on film. The cameraman was just a few feet away.

jordyn - "something more lethal and poisonous"?  :-o  The ray is the most deadly of venomous fish, can grow up to 2m across, weighing 2 tons, with a barb over a foot long. Thousands of people are seriously injured every year in the USA alone.


but rarely die from it... :P

"Stingrays have a serrated, toxin-loaded barb, or spine, on the top of their tail. The barb, which can be up to 10 inches long, flexes if a ray is frightened. Stings usually occur to people when they step on or swim too close to a ray and can be excruciatingly painful but are rarely fatal, said University of Queensland marine neuroscientist Shaun Collin."
"The world that God made is inherently comprised of relationships, symmetries, analogia, anagogy, poetic wisdom. Thus is the language of symbolism."

12 people in the world have ever died from a sting ray attack. 2 were Australian.

Awww, I miss him. I use to watch all of his shows.  :cry: He taught me how to love animals in the first place.

Great, now we all have to watch Jeff Corwin. Not only is he boring, he doesnt have the funny accent.  :|

You can say thatbut I never heard of Jeff Corwin in my life, if I haven't it's not worth knowing.

Personally I wish they'd bring back all of the animal shows on the Discovery Channel.  I constantly watched them when I was a kid.  I eventually got Animal Planet a couple years ago and was very upset to find that they mostly just talked about pets.  I may not have watched the croc hunter very much, but his death makes me even more fearful for the education of children about wild animals and the environment.  I know that in my old elementry school district we used to have to learn all about the tropical rainforests in South America in 3rd grade, but they may even be cutting that out.  At least they've added a new unit about wolves in 5th grade...

Oh, and Jeff Corwin is rather painful to watch.  At least he's pretty enthusiastic about snakes?
