No more "Crikey!"

Steve Irwin, the "Crocodile Hunter", was fatally stung by a stingray while filming at Batt Reef, Low Isles, off Port Douglas. Although no official statement has been released, it was believed that he suffered a cardiac arrest after being stung in the chest.


He has been doing this all this while with nary a scratch.


Most of us would have probably heard of Steve Irwin. He was even featured in an episode of Southpark. He is known to approach dangerous animals while filming. It is tragic that he should die after an attack from a stingray, which is generally a passive creature. Most have not even heard of anyone dying from a similar attack.

I would love to but don't see them in markets here. ):

The only stingrays that i've found so far are classified under "cannot-eat-one-leh". Like those in Melbourne Aquarium or Chevrolet Corvette Stingray on the road. x.x
