Leonard Nimoy's Pet Pad -- A Shop For Exotic Animals
Upon leaving this mortal coil a few years back, Leonard Nimoy was fondly remembered as Spock, a cold, logical creature who had a hard time understanding human emotions like love, hate, and drunk crying. Nimoy, on the other hand, was as gentle and warm a person you could ever meet. And he wasn't just a fan of man, but of all creatures -- specifically, crocodiles and brightly colored birds.

Now, it's not uncommon for a celebrity to back animal causes, but Nimoy's short-lived side business in California in the late '60s was a little different from the modern Sarah McLaughlin weepfests. He didn't merely want to help animals; he wanted animals to make California more interesting. So Nimoy opened a pet store and went about trying to fill it with all the exotic animals he always wished to see, offering everyday pet enthusiasts a chance to mingle with the likes of monkeys, chipmunks, otters, and even a crocodile or two.
