Tragedy. There were a lot of people who were afraid that his antics with dangerous reptiles might get imitators hurt, but in the end I doubt it ever did. I don't think he gave reptile keepers a bad name, if anything he made it cool to like animals again. Even animals that weren't "domesticated".

Personally I think it's tragic what happened, he's irreplaceable. The animals he helped, the people he brought joy to, and the continent he brought fame to. Every one's less because of this and the only good that could come out of this is that his soul rest in peace. I'm sure it is.
