He did seem the most insane man ever (probably alongside Steve Austen), but he certainly had a passion for wild creatures and the need for conversation (conserving wildlife, not chatting!)

Crikey!

Indeed it is, I loved his shows on Discovery, he had such enthusiasm for his work. He was apparently shooting footage for Animal Planet - Oceans' deadliest TV show, I guess it really was.

Doctor don't you mean conservation not conversation?

oh god... I knew I shouldn't have skipped breakfast and coffee!

(really wish I could edit my post now!)

For a family man he took far too many risks.A real tragedy;leaving behind his wife and 2 children.

It is very rare for a stingray to attack;usually only when feeling cornered.

There are a number of these sort of guys and girls out there in the wilderness of life. Most seem very crazy in the way they portray their mode of life, and whilst it is natural to them and perhaps good television and film entertainment to others, these people will always be respected. A very sad loss indeed.

Nice to see there's still some justice in the world.This guy's been making a living by baiting and goading wildlife to attack him and finally one of the tormented creatures has called his bluff and done the job properly.
