Nov. 21, 1968 - Martin Venedy wants to have his own zoo, and the ground has been laid for it as you can see here. These aren't the only animals to be seen though. He has 42 reptiles. It isn't just for his personal enjoyment, but rather to provide a grand attraction for others. The main attraction of the zoo is supposed to be the reptile house, the only one of its kind in Germany. Martin Venedy, a business leader, leads the way in conservation of lizards of all kinds throughout the world. (Credit Image: © Keystone Pictures USA/
