you know nothing about him mate..
he was ordered by an Australian court to return some snakes to a friend of mine....he kept telling everyone if *** ******* asks for his snakes tell him they all died....yet we saw them on some of his shows......my friend helped his father get Zoo Australia started by donating a lot of the animals...my friend bred crocodiles and snakes and exotic birds and raised orphaned, sick, injured kangaroos and wallabies etc, as I did also
I lived in Far North Queensland Australia for over 20yrs
and yes we can recognise an olive python....my friend is the only person to bred them successfully in captivity....
Is that why you keep addressing people as 'mate?' It's an odd usage to someone accustomed to North American style English and led me initially to assume you must be Australian, despite the Canadian flag on your posts.
I wasn't particularly impressed by Steve Irwin. I saw him too many times wondering why some poor critter was irritated with him as he kept poking it with a stick, and taking foolish chances with very dangerous animals. Any death at his age is a tragedy to those who loved him, but the manner of his demise was almost predictable: some day, one of those creatures he tormented was bound to get him.
