Who Wins The Ugliest Animal Award?
The unique conservation group, The Ugly Animal Preservation Society, has decided on a mascot—the blobfish. This non-beauty is a gelatinous blob and was selected via an online video campaign. The runner’s up in this ugly contest—the proboscis monkey, the Titicaca “scrotum” water frog, and the flightless dung beetle. Congratulations to all the contestants.
