If anyone gets a python for their sixth birthday you know they’re reptile crazy because Steve Irwin / The Crocodile Hunter got one for his 6th birthday. Also when Steve was only 9 his father was teaching him how to catch crocodiles in a river at night!! When Steve was grown he took over the zoo that his father owned. A new star is born. Steve’s friend was a TV producer who happen to film him doing a tour and then the first ‘Crocodile Hunter’ show was made. 3 years later he had made 10 one hour episodes shown all over the world and then married a women named Terrie Raines.
