Have a look at the top contenders of world’s ugliest animals because not all animals are cute and cuddly.
1. The Blobfish

2. The Naked Mole Rat
According to Wikipedia, the naked mole-rat also known as the sand puppy or desert mole rat, is a burrowing rodent native to parts of East Africa and is the only species currently classified in the genus.
3. The Star-Nosed Mole
4. The Proboscis Monkey
The proboscis monkey or the long-nosed monkey, known as the bekantan in Malay, is a reddish-brown arboreal Old World monkey that is endemic to the south-east Asian island of Borneo. This species co-exists with the Bornean Orang-utan.
While most people find their large, protruding noses laughably ugly, the animals make good use of their fleshy snouts in courtship. Male proboscis monkeys utilize their bulbous snouts to attract females while scaring off potential males. These monkeys survive on nuts, leaves and unripe fruit because the sugars in ripe fruit can make them sick!
5. The Pig-Nosed Turtle
Also known as the pitted-shelled turtle or Fly River turtle, these specie’s nose actually does resemble that of a pig, with nostrils at the front of a fleshy, protuberant snout. The pig-nosed turtle’s carapace (shell) and limbs may be gray to olive green. Its plastral (bottom shell) color is light—white, cream or yellowish. Males have larger tails than the females, making them easy to identify.
6. The Axolotl
According to Wikipedia, the axolotl, also known as a Mexican salamander or a Mexican walking fish, is a neotenic salamander, closely related to the tiger salamander. Although the axolotl is colloquially known as a “walking fish”, it is not a fish, but an amphibian.
The axolotl is today’s popular freshwater aquarium pet. It has a flat-shaped broad head,wider than it’s body. Its gills are feathery which protrudes on both sides, allowing this creature to breathe under water.
