Who Was Steve Irwin?

by Dina Anastasio

By popular demand,the 100th Who Was…? subject is Steve Irwin!

Steve Irwin did not have a typical childhood. Born in Melbourne,Australia,on February 22,1962,he was raised on the wildlife park his parents owned. He cared for the animals and especially loved reptiles–he got a python for his sixth birthday! At nine years old,Steve was already helping his father wrestle small crocodiles. He became a crocodile trapper after graduating high school,catching the creatures before dangerous poachers could. Steve met his wife,Terri,at his family’s park,and instead of a honeymoon,the pair filmed a wildlife documentary that led to the creation of the well-known series The Crocodile Hunter. Tragically,Steve was killed on September 4,2006 while filming a documentary when a stingray attacked,piercing his heart. He was forty-four years old. However,his life’s work obviously still strikes a chord with kids who voted him the winner of the 100th Who Was…? title.
