Product Description

Crocs rule! And they're ferocious little beauties, as you'll see when Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin takes you on four wild adventures down under.

Charlie - Charlie, a large aggressive crocodile, has been kept in a concrete pen all of his life. He bears the psychological scars of a crocodile that has grown up in confined conditions. Steve, Terri and their team rescue and relocate Charlie to the Australia Zoo. In his new habitat, Charlie becomes a very unpredictable "naughty" crocodile.

How to Catch a Crocodile - Danger, Danger, Danger! Steve shows some of the different trapping, netting and lassoing techniques he uses to relocate crocodiles in the wild and at Australia Zoo. Aussie Legends - Australia is known for it's vast array of unusual animals. In this adventure we take a look at some of the different species of kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, wombats and possums that can be found nowhere else in the world.

Pacific Northwest - Steve and Terri travel throughout the U.S. Northwest, Terri's home state, a region filled with extraordinary wild animals. While exploring this amazing territory, they help with bison and elk operations and interact with otters, beavers, cougars, snakes and bears.

What's great about the rumpled, khaki-clad team of Steve and Terri Irwin, hosts of The Crocodile Hunter, is their complete lack of pretense. Make no mistake: Steve is a goofball, prone to outbursts ("By crikey!") that plant him squarely, cartoonishly, in his native outback, but he clears through the TV muck quickly, plopping his big-eyed persona behind him readily to deliver his points on the ABCs of wildlife. Mostly, it's the Cs that the Irwins dwell on--this feature's "How to Catch a Crocodile" and "Charlie," for instance. "How To" is a huntsman's field guide: for the big fellas, you set a mesh trap and clear out; snagging under-6-footers means leaping out of a boat after dark and wrangling the man-eaters to the riverbank. "Charlie" dips into more of the same--a humongous beast is wrestled into submission, except its focus is fixed on the namesake croc, who's been confined to a concrete pit all his life. From there, the hunter harnesses his weapons for a confrontation-free glimpse at some tamer creatures. "Aussie Legends" examines all you'd expect: kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas--plus possums, the curious Rufus Betong, and a wombat with an attitude. Then, with the indigenous inhabitants of Steve's native stomping grounds surveyed, it's Terri's turn. In "Pacific Northwest," she leads an expedition through the Oregon Trail, where a bison takes a dart to the rump and an elk gets his antlers sawed off. As you'd guess, the croc episodes are what make this title worth owning. That's not to say all four titles aren't solidly educational and fun, only that the swampier shows dish up more of what couch-bound thrill seekers will want to sink their teeth into, so to speak. --Tammy La Gorce

5.0 out of 5 stars In Appreciation to Steve Irwin September 6, 2006
After learning about Steve Irwin's death, I pulled out this collection of DVDs and just smiled a kind of bitter-sweet smile. The things he did, the stuff he the back of my mind I knew it was only going to be a matter of time before something happened. He kept on putting himself in peril and he pulled himself out scrape after scrape... I began to think that maybe he really was invincible.

Sadly, this was not the case.

I haven't watched these DVDs in awhile. I forgot how humorous Steve Irwin really was. How childlike and excited he was to be doing what he loved to do. It is only fitting that he did die doing what he loved. There really couldn't have been any other way. It was just meant to be.

I send peace and blessings to his family and especially to his children. Your dad made the world a better place. His love for animals and wildlife will not be forgotten. He reminded the "little kid" in my heart and soul to come out and play; that it's okay to be enthusiastic...who cares if people think you're nuts...maybe if more people "went nuts" the world would be a happier place.

Steve Irwin did his share. May Spirit guide him to his next daring adventure.

Peace & Blessings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Family Entertainment January 23, 2002
The first time I saw Steve Irwin jump out of a jon boat into the murky waters and come up with a 6 foot crocodile, I thought I had just stumbled upon some stunt/comedy show. I picked up the phone and called my father and told him to turn it on and watch! I LOVE THIS SHOW. It is one of the few shows that I have no issues with from a parent or educator perspective. Steve and Terri are awesome teachers who are passionate about their work. Please make more of these DVDs!!!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars I want to be Steve Irwin October 5, 2002
Steve Irwin has done to the nature-themed TV show what Bruce Lee did to the martial arts movie: added charisma, class, and thoughtfulness. His approach to teaching conservation and respect for nature is truly entertaining. Not only is it amazing to watch him chase after some of the most poisonous snakes in the world without a second thought, his quirky, Australian humor gets me smiling every time. It's great for kids and adults. Every time I watch these, I want to get on a plane to Australia so that I can meet the guy.
This DVD has a lot of great moments in true Steve-style. Be warned, though, that there are some things on this DVD that overlap with his "Best of Crocodile Hunter" DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Croc Files July 10, 2001
Steve and Terri Irwin are so enthousiastic about wildlife and this shows in their quest to share it with children. This is an excellent DVD and I would recommend it highly. I look forward to more "croc files" DVD's in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Volume 1 of Croc Files June 19, 2001
By A Customer
Wow, this is one of the best combinations of Steve and Terri Irwin's Croc Files. This new DVD gives me and my family such a good laugh and at the same time education that we can't stop watching it. Steve Irwin does such a good job of making my kids enjoy nature and gives an old timer like myself a new look on life. As Terri describes him as a "modern day tarzan" and that's exactly what he is. We are truely looking forward to seeing future volumes of the "Croc Files" on DVD as it provides such great commentary by the duo who are actually starring in it. I hope that these two continue to make videos just like these so that people like me and my family can continue to enjoy them.
