well, steve irwin has announced that he is opening an australian animal zoo in vegas and will be spending part of his life overthere from now on. i guess he'll be filling the empty void that was left by the departure of sigfried and roy. as just one of millions of fellow australians who find his behaviour somewhat embarrassing, usa jon, YOU GUYS CAN HAVE HIM!!! i do believe he has conservation at heart, but i can't say i find him particuarly knowledgable about animals. most people love his simple, layman's vocabulary - but i'll have david attenborough any day of the week! interestingly, if you whach any of the very early australian-made crocodile hunter doco's - he behaves very seriously and holds back somehwhat on the crikey's. one things for sure though, australia zoo is going to become HUGE! i just hope he realises that nobody really cares if its bindy's birthday, or if baby bob has finally become potty trained!
