Remembering the Crocodile Hunter

The famous Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin, was attacked by a stingray fish, and he was pierced right in the heart by the tail of stingray, and died shortly.Crocodile Hunter
He is antheusiasmentheusastic in protecting wildlife and he is always so intrepid to walk to an unknow area to look for wild snake/crocodile/spider or any wild life, and he always holds a python when talking to the camera about the life style and living condition of wild lifes.

I watched his program "The Crocodile Hunter" in Animal Planet in 2000 when I was in Shenzhen. His British English is so funny to me, so I started to following him saying "Mate". Prime Minister of Australia said it was a big lost and "Australia has lost a wonderful and colorful son."

The left is a stingray fish, which is toxic enough to bring pain to people who got stinged, but not that toxic to kill people. This time the fish stinged Steve right in the chest and create his instant death, and the process was record in a camera because Steve was showing how to find wild life in the river.

Steve acted in one movie, The Crocodile Hunter. A spaceship had an accident, and the black box falled into Australia, and it was swallowed by a crocodile. So two CIA agents were sent to find the black box, when Steve was trying to protect all the wild life in that area. The movie is not an action movie nor a comedy. It is simply a documentary movie to show Steve's crocodile hunting action. Don't expect Tom Cruse or Helle Berry, but Steve's show with so many wild life is interesting enough.

Thank goodness, you are practicing your English secretly. :-)

antheusiasm ->enthusiasm

If you use "and", you can omit the subject such as he.

For example, he is enthusiastic in protecting wildlfe and always walks bravely to an unknow place to look for wild snakes/crocodiles/siders or any kind of animals. He often holds a python when talking to the caera about the snake's lifestyle and living environment.

I have some concerns about the tense in this paragraph too.
