A handout picture released Monday Aug. 1, 2005 shows Duncan Rooke, 32, left and Stephen Buss, 30, as they haul in a record-breaking catfish in the River Ebro, near Barcelona in Spain on July 6, 2005. The 7ft 7in, (2.3 meters) 212lb (96kgms) female fish is the biggest freshwater catch ever made by a British angler and nearly pulled 32-year-old gas engineer Rooke back into the river once he had hold of her. After weighing the fish and burping her to get rid of the air in her stomach she was released. Photo taken on July 6. (AP Photos/HO/PA)

I've actually been to this place!

Saurierpark Kleinwelka

My wife, our then two-year-old son and I visited relatives outside of Dresden, in the former E. Germany in 1994.

Lots of fun, a great place to take the kids, even back then. It has expanded considerably. Amazingly enough, I learned the place was started in somebody's backyard back during the Iron Curtain era, using scrap metal and leftover concrete to make the dinosaur models. The guy who did it was not educated, but rather a self-taught guy who learned everything in his spare time about fossils and dinosaurs. Somehow the guy kept it all together and made the transition from the Communist world to the capitalist one, and the place is making money nowadays.
