"If something ever happens to me, people are gonna be like 'we knew a croc would get him!'"
---Biography for Steven Irwin (II) in The Internet Movie Database

"Born a wildlife warrior, die a wildlife warrior."
---Radio interview on Radio Alice (KLLC 97.3)

"Crikey, mate. You're far safer dealing with crocodiles and western diamondback rattlesnakes than the executives and the producers and all those sharks in the big MGM building."

"Crikey means gee whizz, wow!"
"Crikey, mate. You're far safer dealing with crocodiles and western diamondback rattlesnakes than the executives and the producers and all those sharks in the big MGM building."
---"Enough Rope With Andrew Denton" on ABC, 2004

"Herein lies our problem. If we level that much land to grow rice and whatever, then no other animal could live there except for some insect pest species. Which is very unfortunate."

"I am optimistic globally. So many scientists are working frantically on the reparation of our planet."

"I believe our biggest issue is the same biggest issue that the whole world is facing, and that's habitat destruction."

"I believe sustainable use is the greatest propaganda in wildlife conservation at the moment."

"I believe that education is all about being excited about something. Seeing passion and enthusiasm helps push an educational message."

"I bled a lot. I got hit across the face. We couldn't film for seven days. I got hit, whacked, underwater, across the face. I finished the shot, got into the boat and blood started coming out."

"I get called an adrenaline junkie every other minute, and I'm just fine with that."

"I have no fear of losing my life - if I have to save a koala or a crocodile or a kangaroo or a snake, mate, I will save it."

"I've probably saved thousands of peoples' lives with my educational message on snake bites, how to get in around venomous anything."
---Online interview at Scientific American online (sciam.com) (26 March 2001)

"My belief is that what comes across on the television is a capture of my enthusiasm and my passion for wildlife."

"My dad taught me from my youngest childhood memories through these connections with Aboriginal and tribal people that you must always protect people's sacred status, regardless of the pest."

"My field is with apex predators, hence your crocodiles, your snakes, your spiders."

"No matter where you go and what you do in America, you turn the tele on and you're confronted with violence."

"No, snakes are no problem. I'd go to any country, anywhere, any snakes, not a problem."

"Every cent we earn from Crocodile Hunter goes straight back into conservation. Every single cent."

"See, I've always seen Jacques Cousteau as a hero, mate. He's a legend - like my dad, just a legend. And so what he did for conservation in the '60s through the '70s was just phenomenal."

"Sharks, I've been self-trained as well, and crocodiles, naturally. I've been catching them since I was nine. No problem."

"Since I was a boy, from this house, I was out rescuing crocodiles and snakes. My mum and dad were very passionate about that and, I was lucky enough to go along."

"Snakes are just very instinctive to me. I've been playing with snakes since before I could walk. It doesn't matter where or what it is, from the biggest to the most venomous."

"So fear helps me from making mistakes, but I make lot of mistakes."

"So now what happens is the cameras follow me around and capture exactly what I've been doing since I was a boy. Only now we have a team of, you know, like 73 of us, and it's gone beyond that."

"So, my tactic with conservation of apex predators is to get people excited and take them to where they live."

"Take the crocodile, for example, my favorite animal. There are 23 species. Seventeen of those species are rare or endangered. They're on the way out, no matter what anyone does or says, you know."

"That might have a lot to do with it, but you know, I probably don't show fear, but I suffer from fear like everyone else."

"The first crocodile I ever caught was at nine years of age, and it was a rescue."

"The only animals I'm not comfortable with are parrots, but I'm learning as I go. I'm getting better and better at 'em. I really am."

"There's a lot of research behind the scenes that you don't get to see, but I have an instinct that my dad nurtured from when I was born. I was very lucky then."

"We've evolved from sitting back on our tripods and shooting wildlife films like they have been shot historically, which doesn't work for us."

"When I talk to the camera, mate, it's not like I'm talking to the camera, I'm talking to you because I want to whip you around and plunk you right there with me."

"Where I live if someone gives you a hug it's from the heart."

"Yeah, I think it's an absolute disaster that Australia, the government, allowed kangaroo culling."

"Yeah, I'm a thrill seeker, but crikey, education's the most important thing"

"You know, I'm Australian, and we have got the worst sense of humor. We are cruel to each other."

"I have a deep-seated respect for parrots. As gifted as I am with all other wildlife, parrots have this uncanny desire to kill me. I'm not sure why, but they're like my kryptonite!"
"I'm very embarrassing to look at. You know why? Here's why I'm embarrassing: 'cause there's a little bit of me in everybody....I'm like the boy that never grew up. I'm very, very passionate about what I do. I mean, I love what I do....and people are like, "God, give this guy a valium or something, you know? Can't he have a bad day?"
"I've got the Terri factor, mate. I've got this wife that is so incredibly intelligent and strong that I reckon, between us, we'll get through it."
--- "Enough Rope With Andrew Denton" on ABC, 2003

"You know, you can touch a stick of dynamite, but if you touch a venomous snake it'll turn around and bite you and kill you so fast it's not even funny."

"I have a message for my fans. Whatever you want to do in this world, it is achievable. The most important thing that I've found, that perhaps you could use, is be passionate and enthusiastic in the direction that you choose in life, and you'll be a winner."
---Crikey! What an Adventure on Animal Planet, 2007
