Mick Dundee (Paul Hogan)
"Crocodile" Dundee is a 1986 Australian comedy film set in the Australian Outback and in New York City It was Inspired by the true life exploits of Rodney Ansell.
Ansell was on a fishing trip near the Victoria River mouth with only his two cattle dogs when his boat was capsized and sunk, by a crocodile. He managed to board his boat's tender, a small dinghy with only a single oar, and retrieve his dogs and a small amount of equipment (including his rifle, knives and bedding) but had no fresh water. Ansell travelled up the Fitzmaurice River on tidal flows over the next 72 hours, becoming severely dehydrated before finding fresh water above the saltwater tidal range. He survived alone for two months by hunting and shooting wild cattle for food, and planned to walk overland to a pastoral station homestead when the wet season began. Ansell was eventually rescued by a small cattle droving party.
Steve Irwin (22 February 1962 – 4 September 2006) and Aussie Zoo mates
Steve began handling crocodiles at the age of nine after his father had educated him on reptiles from an early age. Also at age nine he wrestled his first crocodile, again under his father's supervision. He worked as a volunteer for Queensland's East Coast Crocodile Management program and captured over 100 crocodiles, some of which were relocated, while others were housed at the family park.
