The Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, was an inspiration to generation of kids and grownups too. His passion for animals and teaching us how to understand animals is unparalleled. Before he became an international celebrity, Steve did an animal bit on the local TV station near his home. Here is video of one of his early appearances. This is an appearance that didn't go exactly as planned. 

However in true Crocodile Hunter style, he remained calm and handled the situation with a bit of humor and a whole lot of grace under fire. I miss seeing the Crocodile Hunter on TV, he brought a good message. He taught that respect was universal or at least should be between all of God's creatures.

It just goes to show that no matter how unique your talent may be, if you use it wisely, it is possible to get the attention of the world.
