Crikey, mates, look who's chasing crocs! No, not Steve Irwin, that Aussie bloke who hosts "The Crocodile Hunter." It's Jeff Corwin, that American dude who hosts "The Jeff Corwin Experience" on Animal Planet. Aside from the differences in accents and outfits (Irwin wears a dark khaki ensemble; Corwin gallivants around in an impossibly clean blue shirt and light khaki shorts), you could be forgiven for confusing the two.

There is a holocaust happening. Right now. And it's not confined to one nation or even one region. It is a global crisis. Species are going extinct en masse. Every 20 minutes we lose an animal species. If this rate continues, by century's end, 50% of all living species will be gone. It is a phenomenon known as the sixth extinction. The fifth extinction took place 65 million years ago when a meteor smashed into the Earth, killing off the dinosaurs and many other species and opening the door for the rise of mammals.

The white tiger was starting to get a little frisky with its human play-pal when the Animal Planet honcho figured he'd better offer a quick bit of advice: "If you start to feel teeth," he said, "gently push the teeth and mouth away." Where was this guy when Siegfried and Roy needed him? It turns out that the honcho, critter expert Jeff Corwin, has had his hands full getting a new reality show off the ground for the cable channel.
