    Awww he was such a lovely man. I always used to have this theory that all animals knew who he was and that they passed it on to each other "That's that Steve Irwin guy . . hes one of us ya know !" Every single animal he came into contact with, seemed to love and trust him !

    You can see how much respect and understanding he had for the mother orang; notice he never touched her or her baby although he was probably very tempted to, but just calmly let her touch and snuggle up to him. It's the same with mountain gorillas that are habituated to human presence; when goups of tourists visit them they are not allowed to ever touch any of the baby gorillas even if they come right up to them and touch or sometimes even groom or climb on them, because no matter how relaxed the adults might seem any touch by a human can be possibly misinterpreted as a threatening action.

    How can anyone dislike this video? They must be terrorists. This incredible, genuine man was such a champion for animals all over the globe. He’s missed tremendously. Gone way too soon, but he’ll never be forgotten. He’d be so proud of his wife and kids for continuing his very important work, saving wildlife from humans and their greed, habitat loss and extinction. I ❤️ and miss you Mr. Irwin. You were one of a kind. #RIPSteveIrwin 🙏🏼

    I really believe that many animals can sense the spirit / soul / mind (whatever you want to call it) of people they meet. This is why people like Steve who exuded kindness and compassion are embraced by them.

    Always SO loved his spontaneity... R.I.P. you wonderful human... Creatures of all species have truly lost an ambassador of note! Remember day I heard about his demise... I had my little Maltese poodle on my lap & put my head into her fur & sobbed...
    Humans were intended to live in paradise with creatures...being loving & nurturing caretakers ....not exploitative... hunters... et al ... had joyous experience of forming a close friendship with a beautiful male lion cub named Mafuzza...from 3 mnth old til he was 18mnths & his mane was showing & also an elephant in Knysna Elephant Park... ecstatic feeling of joy...the wild smell of the animal... indescribable...

    At that moment you have to just go with it, hug the ape like its family, who cares if it attacks you and you die, its a good way to die.

    Watching this makes me smile, Steve Irwin was one of my heroes growing up as a kid, Always loved the Crocodile Hunter on TV. I'm sad Steve Irwin is not with us on this earth anymore, However when I watch his son Robert Irwin on T.V. weather it is on their Show "Crikey!!" Its the Irwin's or see him on Jimmy Fallon it makes me smile to see how much Robert is like his father Steve
    In the way he is so passionate about Wildlife and has Steve's charisma as well too. It is good to see Steve's legacy lives on through his children and others who looked up to him :)

    I know this sounds kind of ridiculous, but I have this man to thank for the path I chose in life and where I am today. My love of science has been an important part of my life since I was a small child, so I chose to pursue a Bachelor of science degree and now a grad degree. t was watching science and nature documentaries like the Crocodile Hunter that kicked it off. Though the exact path has shifted as I've grown older from biology/zoology (the closest thing to Steve's job, short of maybe "manhandler of animals", that I thought was possible to actually pursue) to neuroscience and psychology, I've never wanted to do anything else but a career in science.

    I got angry when several orang utans were poached for their body parts in my country, Malaysia years ago when I was a kid, apparently they were hunted for organs to be shipped to China, the only orang utan left was a young baby that was named Budi later on by the time forest rangers found them tugging at her butchered mother (she is is now at the Sabah Orang Utan Sanctuary).There needs to be a law that allows to kill poachers.

    Loved watching this guy when I was younger and was devestated when he passed on, there is a lot of people out there who said he only harassed wildlife but those where never his intentions. He truly only ever wanted to get closer to nature and experience its wonders.
    Rest in Peace Steve, we miss you.
