So long, Steve...



A stingray tail piercing his heart? Wow. Steve, you will be missed.

While other National Geographic type animal shows had boring announcers talking over 300x zoom cameras watching lions wagging their tails in the heat from a distance, Steve actually got close to the animals and made it exciting and interesting to watch. While his personality could have come off as forced, faked, cheap, or showboating, personally he struck me as genuinely excited and passionate about whatever he was talking about (even if it was about to bite him in the face). I always liked how Steve was able to gain so much popularity while retaining his overall message about preservation and conservation of wildlife. Hopefully others will be able to continue the work that he started...
