Posted by: Loren Coleman on September 6th, 2006

Did Steve Irwin have a sense of humor?

Of course he did.

View “Steve Irwin Wrestling Gators Mascot”.

Thanks to my son Caleb for this suggestion.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    When I first saw this on ESPN, I nearly fell out of my chair laughing.

  2. mauka responds:

    I always thought he had a humor all his own.

  3. youcantryreachingme responds:

    I think one thing about Irwin which is presently understated is his dedication to family.

    I know the fact has been pointed out in many of the recent tributes on TV – that the only thing he loved more than animals was his family – but think about it; the man was (and is) a *huge* role model for familial commitment.

    In this day and age, that’s something really special.

    And what a fun dad and husband he would have been too!

    I forgot who it was, but some tv show about the stars interviewed him and his wife. His wife was truly proud of him, but not just for all the achievements on tv and his work with animals and all, but because he was also the kind of man that every woman wants their mate to be, kind, funny, dedicated to family first and an all around descent man.

  5. Jean Luc Picard responds:

    As Steve would say “CROCS RULE!” He’s an awesome, awesome guy and you can tell that he really enjoyed life. Everyday was a different adventure for him and he was so passionate about what he believed in. I wish there was more people like him out there.

  6. Lee Pierce responds:

    Maybe, not enough has been said about Steve’s wife. Here she was an Oregon girl who married ‘The Crock Guy’and moved a cazillion miles from home. Wherever he went, she almost always followed. She seems to be a great animal advocate in her own right. I hope she continues Steve’s work.

  7. Rabbit responds:

    Steve and I had the same name and age. It is a potent reminder of how suddenly and unexpectedly it all can end.

    Good onya mate and thanks!

  8. Rabbit responds:

    By the way; Any decent Aussie has a self deprecating sense of humour.

  9. stillserchin responds:

    Humor was just a part of this wonderfully unique man’s make up. Like his father Bob said, “He was just a regular bloke, a regular guy.” A regular guy who lived and loved life to the fullest who devoted his life and passion to wildlife conservation and cherished his family like no other.
