Wait until you see the video, I just saw here- What is he thinking? Would you put a baby, especially your own, where Steve put his newborn son- in a crocodile pit? I just saw the clip on MSNBC-

i just watched the video of steve irwin with his baby..... and i must say... OMG that baby is at least a good 3 feet away from the crocidle in the arms of a trained professional ( all be him increddibly lame ) but hes been doin it for the better part of what his whole dam life... hell i bet that kid is more at home and safer in that zoo then anywhere else.

kind of reminds me of my friend's wife the day she stoped the car and watched some kid playiing in his front yard worried he was going to get hit by the buss that was 50 yards away.

that sort of thing is just a way of life in his family. Anyone who watches him regularly and has seen the programme about his life will know that his father introduced him to all sorts of creatures at an early age.
In the UK we have a zoo called Howletts which is owned by the Aspinal family. They have a tradition of introducing their infant children to gorillas.
I think Steve Irwin knows exactly what he is doing. He has the utmost respect for any animal he comes across and knows how to judge them .
Theres no way that he would have put his child in that sort of situation if there was any doubt that no harm would come to him.

Irwins OK..

Lots of aussies have crocs in the bottom of their back yards, it keeps the stray cat population down.

Not too many children get eaten each year by them. Generally just the weak ones who can't crawl fast enough. Or the stupid ones who try to retrieve ther balls from the croc pen.

Its a great way to dispose of your old relatives as well, just send them down the back to tip out the scraps on the compost heap. You never hear from them again...

They put them in the pools as well to inspire the swimmers to break speed records, thats why aussies are so good at swimming.

Thats also why they are so well represented in the disabled olympics, some of the slower ones lose limbs.

Crocs are a useful addition to any urban enviromment.

Well, I have seen him slip before. And the baby's neck wasn't supported as Irwin was one handing him. I agree he is a professoinal with wildlife- but I think he was a little out of context to do this like he did in front of the show-and willl probaly catch flak over it from fans.

Damn dude, I ai'nt in his business- just commenting on what was shown on tv- that's all- actually I watch his show quite often. Hypocrite? Huh? And in all actuality, his actions which were posted on national news brought it in my life- hense the comment here.
Nothuing more than a subject to discuss on a quiet night-

The show was billed as 'bobs first feeding'. Bob being the name of steves baby. It was perfectly safe, crocs can't move forwards fast on dry land. Pretty sure steve knows what he is doing.

Plus it was pretty bloody good free advertising seeing as though everyone is talking about it

I like Steve Irwin and I just laughed my ass off when I saw him with the baby near that croc. Truly a hilarious stunt. Maybe not the smartest thing to do, but man, it made my day.

At least Irwin has one thing over Michael Jackson regarding putting their children in danger, Irwin's kid is actually his own flesh and blood son.

Ok no matter how skilled he is what is the point of putting a baby in any kind of danger? It is ridiculous, is he that desperate for ratings? Seriously what is the point? Ok I understand the concept we are all creatures sharing the world together but no croc Mom would intentionally bring her babies into contact with humans she (supposedly not that intelligent by all reports) would have enough sense to know that humans means danger to her babies. I know how to drive a car but that doesn't mean I go stand in front of one on the highway to show my newborn baby what one looks like. What was this guy thinking?

I think all the rightous indignation here is symptomatic of the Political Correctness school of thinking prevalent in our society.

How many people REALLY think Steve would put his own child at risk?

I have to say that if it was my child, I would be hysterical, but then again if he was my husband and we all know how smart Steve is, I would have to trust him. That guy knows what he is doing. I would imagine he would throw himself in harms way if it meant saving his son. He is a professional and everyone needs to lay off a bit.

It also seems that some people tempt fate just a bit too often

Shoot, it was kinda funny, like the dancing baby thing that made it's rounds a couple years ago.

But perhaps he should have waited a couple months til the kid could hold up it's own head.

That kid was a Newborn, and they are pretty fragile.

But hey, he is the expert on crocs.

Still funny though
