BIOGRAPHY:

Steve Irwin was born in 1962 to parents Lyn and Bob Irwin, who were animal naturalists. He shared the love for animals all his life, stemming from being raised at the Queensland Reptile and Fauna Park. There, he partook in daily duties of animal feeding and care. He quickly established himself with the Queenland's government on the process of the country's Crocodile Relocation Program, in which the reptiles could be transferred and relocated to proper localties in the most absolute humane, non-tranquilizing manner. He frequently implements the non-tranquilizing factor in his televison show Croc Files (1999). Steve married fellow naturalist, Terri Irwin in 1992. She joined him in his adventures and efforts in almost every episode of his show. They had one daughter, Bindi Sue Irwin, who was born July 24, 1998. He died in September 2006 following an attack by a stingray, off the Great Barrier Reef.


TRIVIA:
  • _Happy Feet (2006)_ (qv) is dedicated to his memory.
  • Was scared to death of parrots, especially the sulfar crested cockatoo. When he was four years old, he almost had his nose bitten off by his father's pet sulfar crest. The only bird he felt comfortable around is a black cockatoo named Ularoo.
  • Almost faced charges of child endangerment in early January 2004 for doing a crocodile demonstration while holding his one-month-old son Bob in one arm and feeding a 13-foot crocodile with the other. Steve and Terri claimed that their son was in no danger and that both their children were going to be "croc savvy".
  • Two sisters, Mandy and Joy.
  • Steve and Terri's daughter, Bindi Sue Irwin, is actually named for Steve's favorite crocodile, Bindi and his dog, Sui, who has, incidentally, appeared in numerous _"Crocodile Hunter" (1996)_ (qv) episodes with Steve and Terri.
  • His dog, Sui, is a Staffordshire Bullterrier cross
  • Daughter, 'Bindi Irwin' (qv), was born 24 July, 1998 at 9:46 PM, weighing 6 lb. 3 oz.
  • Despite all his close calls with animals, he had only had muscle surgery on his knee as a result before a stingray attack claimed his life.
