Steve Irwin is known around the world as the "Crocodile Hunter."
Since he was nine years old, Irwin has had an intense love of crocodiles. It was a love so strong that he devoted his life to them. Today, as "The Croc Hunter," his hit television show is seen by hundreds of millions of viewers every day.
Steve visited The Saturday Early Show and the States to hunt for some "human" contestants for the Animal Planet's new reality series, "The Croc Hunter Challenge."
Irwin is looking for ten American contenders to live and work at Australia Zoo. Contestants will take on some of the most dangerous tasks that could include mowing crocodile enclosures, raiding croc and gator nests, rescuing wild snakes and feeding everything that bites in the zoo.
The challenger who is best able to learn and perform these tasks under the watchful, and sometimes critical eyes, will earn the title of ultimate zoo champion and win the trip of a lifetime around Australia.

The hottest ticket in New York these days is to a new exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It's not a view into the tombs of Egyptian pharos, or a collection of Impressionist master works. No, this exhibit's all about skirts, specifically, men in skirts.
Associate Curator Andrew Bolton says, "The inspiration came from this man on the subway in London wearing a skirt and also seeing people's reactions to him, which was either very extreme or very lukewarm, but everyone had a reaction to the man in this skirt. And I thought, it's still one of the taboos of fashion."
Braveharts: Men in Skirts can be seen at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan through Feb. 8.
