This was a fantastic read. It was wonderful, to hear Steve's voice again in my mind while reading this. The stories that was in the book were not new to me. I had read or seen, the animal documentaries that was talked about in this book. It was just nice, to spend a few days reading about Steve again. The pictures through out the book were great as well. You can see, why Steve loved the wildlife he saved during his life.

The Crocodile Hunter by Steve and Terri Irwin is a great book. It's a great autobiography written by Steve and Terri. I like this book because I love reptiles and I've always liked him and what he does since I was 4. Steve Irwin got his name Crocodile Hunter because he loves crocodiles/animals. This book is about Steve and Terri's wild adventures.

Steve Irwin was born on February 22, 1962. He grew up with reptiles. Where ever he went he was always trying to catch something a lizard or a snake. He
Rest in peace Steve will be missed.
A book about my hero.

I enjoyed this book, though parts of it seemed slightly exaggerated (ie: as a boy Steve recalls "often catching and releasing a hundred lizards in an hour".)
I did like the passion that both Steve and Terri have for animals and the well being of the earth's ecosystems. I miss Steve all over again because he took such an active roll to help animals. Helping animals really was an immense part of his life - and what he did for animals would ultimately help human beings, too.
An easy read and a great
Absolutely amazing book and so sorry that he is no longer with us.
Great to read Steves memories, passionate and intelligent.
