Irwin's Silver Springs visit remembered fondly

Published September 05. 2006
Steve Specht, marketing director of Silver Springs, said he joined Irwin when he filmed a segment of "The Crocodile Hunter" at the park in 1999. Specht said he watched Irwin swim alongside an alligator in the Silver River.

In and around Silver Springs, Irwin also found a large snapping turtle, searched in vain for cottonmouths and tapped Sobek, a 15-foot-long crocodile weighing 2,000 pounds, the largest American crocodile in captivity, on the nose, Specht said.
