Steve Irwin is a Modern Day Achilles!

Crikey! She’s a beauty and sharks, I've been self-trained as well, and crocodiles, naturally. I've been catching them since I was nine. No problem. –Steve Irwin

A surfer and adventurer meet’s his death on a sad day, 09.04.06. It seems apparent that Steve Irwin must have been dipped into the river Styx, held only by his heart. It seems that the heart was the only vulnerable and unprotected part, pierced by a stingray and its venomous dart. Although everyone’s days are numbered who would have thought that Steve’s number was up?

Steve Irwin was and is a modern day Achilles. Steve was an animal kingdom warrior! Who will entertain us now? To me and mine, Steve Irwin will be missed. Our hearts go out to his wife Terri and their beautiful children, family, and friends as the world grieves the loss of the infamous “Croc Hunter” and his crikey call.
