      • At the end of this special, the Discovery Channel did a special bio show about Steve Irwin.

      • The golf ball-sized greater blue-ringed octopus (Hapalochlaena lunulata) is reportedly the most toxic sea creature. It lives in the Pacific Ocean between Japan and Australia. The venom of one bite is enough to kill a human. There is no antidote. Rescue breathing and artificial respiration can provide oxygen to the victim for a 24-hour period until the victim's body can work the poison out of the system.

      • The official Animal Planet site for the show concludes that humans are actually the ocean's deadliest creatures. Overfishing, discarded plastic, other pollution and global warming are said to be destroying coral reefs, the great white shark and other marine life. Coral reefs are the foundation of the entire ocean ecosystem. Scientists predict that most of the coral in the Great Barrier Reef (the world's largest coral reef system) near Australia will be killed off by 2030.

      • Steve Irwin was killed during the filming of this documentary. However, on the day of his death, he was not working on this documentary. Because of the local weather conditions, filming was called off that day. Instead, Steve decided to film some scenes for his daughter Bindi's new show for Discovery Kids. It was then that he was accidentally killed by a stingray barb.

      • This 90-minute special was Steve Irwin's final nature documentary. During the premiere airing, the program was broadcast simultaneously on Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel.
