    Jeff Corwin was as fearless as Steve but treated animals with more respect and didn't pretend like the animals were thrashing on him to keep from manhandling them

    He did a lot to popularize the animal world and probably helped conservation efforts. On the other hand he often acted moronic around animals and it ultimately led to his death

      >he often acted moronic around animals
      He knew what he was doing, though. Acting moronic implies he was just fricking around with no regard for safety. He went as far as he could and still remain safe. You didn't see him frick around with hippos or cassowaries like that. So it's not like he was as cavalier as the memes make it out to be.

        I remember he was feeding crocodiles while holding his infant son which is fricking dumb whichever way you slice it.

        Doesn't make you a fighter. He was trained to play tag for points not box and be hit. That being said he wouldn't have much he could do if Steve were to grapple him like he does to Crocs. Wes probably didnt have a ground and pound game just striking.

      Coyote Peterson tries hard to be him and seems nice, but his content is mediocre and he's borderline moronic. I do like the clips of him stinging himself for our entertainment though.

    his style of presentation has gone out in favor of non-interactive drone footage, and I think that's for the best, even though I miss him.

    watching old Jeff Corwin Experience and Crocodile Hunter has me cringing at how they just grab wild critters and shove them in focus, it's not great.

            What can an elephant actually do though? If you hug its hind legs it can't reach you with its truck, and its too sluggish to get away while you repeatedly pommel it from behind. If you stand to the side of its hind legs then it won't even be able to hit you with a back kick. If it raises its leg to perform a stomp then all you have to do is back off until it finishes its slam, then move back in to continue punching.

      I personally like the drone footage style but to be fair I'm pretty sure that there were far more kids who gained a greater appreciation for nature from watching them than there were kids who started actually going out and harassing animals. Also do kids even watch that kind of drone style footage to begin with? I always got the impression that it's pretty much all adults except for those garbage overproduced pet and baby animal shows on Netflix which teach nothing.
      Frankly I think one snake or croc being uncomfortable for 10 minutes is worth that.

    When I was 7-8 years old me and my friends where playing with some toads. We thought the toads might want to eat some ants, so we put them down near an anthill. They were red fire ants... they attacked the toads and bit them so they swelled up and died, and my friends got so angry at the ants they started destroying their hill and stomping on them. I watched a lot of crocodile hunter, it was my favourite show, and even though I also got angry at the ants and wanted revenge for the toads, I realized it was our fault not the animals, and told them to stop. Mb I would have made them stop even if I hadn't watched Steve Irwin, but I think he did a good job of making kids understand that animals just do what they do to survive and if you mess with wild ones it's never their fault if you get hurt.

    Yeah, even if you shouldn't do what he did and go around picking up and touching wild animals, he showed a lot of kids that crocs and other reptiles aren't evil or bad just because they're dangerous, and when a wild animal bites or attacks a human, its not out of malice.

        I know we did make steve habbos (khaki shorts basically) and block the pool briefly for a laugh, since at that point fricking with habbo was normal behaviour here.
