He was my favourite and I did not watch his shows for any adrenaline rush. I watched him for his love and the understanding of animals. He has been criticized for holding his baby while feeding a giant crock. I do not understand it why? He showed that he did understand the behaviour of a crocodile. No one risks the life of his own baby. And when he did it he was loud and clear that it was not a risk but a clear understanding of the animal's behaviour. And talking of erratic behaviour? Who can compete with the humans? He was an extension of the animal kingdom. To understand animals one needs to feel part of it and very few can claim that today.
