Today, November 15th, is a day dedicated in memory of the famous Australian wildlife expert, the Crocodile Hunter himself, Steve Irwin. Born in 1962.
He was a great and adventurous man, going around the world and seeing amazing things. He is definitely one of my childhood heroes.
As many of you heard, he ended up loosing his life in 2006, at the age of 44, from doing what he did best. He was diving in Batt Reef (part of the Great Barrier Reef) and ended up accidently frightening a Stingray, being then stung by the Ray's venomous tail-spine, right in heart (a very weak spot on anything with a heart).
He will, of course, always be remembered. Pretty much his daughter Bindi shall carry on his legacy.
