The Crocodile Hunter by Hannah M.

In our world of actors, actresses and famous people, I'll never forget a funny Australian guy named Steve. He was one of my greatest heros of all time. I'd always laugh when he'd jump on a crocodile and almost get eaten alive. I remember the excitement he had in animals. I'd always get exctited whenever his show came on. He was a hero to me because of his love for both big and small creatures. He wasn't boring like most of the other animal professionals on tv. He loved animals and wanted every person to feel the same way. To me and others, this is amazing. I remember was sort of like him when I was little girl. I used to stick my hand in holes I knew I wasnt sopposed to. I was never scared of frogs or snakes.

When I first saw Steve on television I immediately became attracted to him. Here was a guy who loved animals just like I did! From then on, it grew. I'll never forget those famous words he'd say like, "Crikey!, "Lookit this Mate, and "This ones a big one! I had a dream of working at Australian zoo just like him.

When the news came that he had died from a stingray I couldnt believe it. It was all too unreal. I cryed alot for a couple of days. On that same day there were others all around the world crying. How could such a great man die so early in his life? Later on I was thinking about it, and I realized that he died in a good way. He could have died of much greater deaths like being mulled alive by a lion or eaten by a alligator,which wouldnt be too good. But God chose a place for him to die. In the playground of the beautiful barrier reefs. What greater place to die than to look at colored corals and fish swimming all around. I imagine he had some brief beautiful moments before he died. This man died doing what he loved most. Caring for Gods creatures.

. There was one thing I didnt get though. If this man had such an excitement for animals then why couldnt he have the same excitement for God? I hope Steve was saved, and that someone had witnessed to him in his life. If Steve would have gotten saved, his strong love for Christ and animals would have helped many people all over the world to know Christ. His love and encouragement and excitement for Jesus, just as much as animals would overflow. Steve helped the environment, loved animals very much, and wanted you to get exctied about nature, but he failed to realize something greater. He forgot Christ. There are so many other famous people and actresses all over the world that die each day not knowing God. Although they were famous people, that still doesnt get them to heaven. Same thing for us. Its believing in Christ and accepting Him, thats going to get you to heaven. In the Bible it says "like dust, all things will fade away" when we get to heaven, but if we know God, we know that will never fade away. Steve had a love for animals but those faded away as soon as he got to heaven. My point is, why dont we try to be like the Crocodile Hunter, and have that same love and passion for Christ instead of animals? If you have a strong passion for something make sure its God. We can become in love with money, life, food, and other things, but the number one thing is to be passionate for God. Not things. I still love the Crocodile Hunter. He'll always be a big influence on me. We should all try to be Crocodile Hunters for Christ!! And yes, his legacy will go on forever.
God Bless ya all, Mates!!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
