Did anyone watch the 20/20 special tonight about Steve Irwin's death and the interview with his widow? It was really good and sad. His widow was telling a story about how, before they were married, he took her out on his boat...he got out and stood in a certain spot before she got out of the boat...she said that he told her that he had captured the big male croc, but he was standing there in case there was another one around, he didn't want her to get eaten by it. *L* They showed home video, including the births of both kids, and family vacation, talked about the zoo (the only animals at the zoo there in Australia that you can't get up close and personal to are the dangerous ones, like the tigers and crocs), but she said the koalas will come down out of the trees and you can feed and pet them, same thing with the kangaroos. More zoos here in the US should be like that. Sure a lot of them have petting zoos, but what do you usually find in them...horses, elephants, sheep...your average every day animals...

I watched, Val..and recorded it...it was a really good interview with Terri and Steve's director, John Stainton. It was very sad to watch..it's still so hard to believe this has happened...Steve was just so vibrant and full of energy all the time...I really feel sorry for his kids, having to grow up without their Dad..

He sure was. I never saw his show, but you could see from the clips they showed about him. Looks like Bindi is going to follow in her dad's footsteps with her own TV show. I was in the bathroom last night washing my teeth and standing there thinking "boy, I sure hope Taylor doesn't see the show, because she'll be saying to my sister "mommy, can I have an alligator like Bindi? *LOL!"

I didn't see this. I wish I had known it was going to be on. I think his death is so sad, and what a tremendous loss for the world and his family. I do think his little girl, Bindi, will follow in her Dad's footsteps. That would have made Steve very proud. He talked about her all the time.

I watched this and it was so sad and moving, all at the same time....What a tragedy for all, really....I had to cry with her at one point nearing the end of the interview.....
