Animals come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Some are beautiful, majestic and endearing. Others are downright nasty and repugnant. Wouldn’t it be fun to try and narrow down the worst looking of the bunch? Here is my unofficial list of the top ten ugliest animals in the world.
10. Sphynx Cat
This cat is hairless and hideous. Despite its horrible looks, it is known as quite loving towards its human owners. They are also said to have fantastic personalities.
Found in Africa, the warthog looks like a pig with horns. Warts cover their large flat heads. Even though these warts are for protection, they are not aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
8. Baird Tapir
The baird tapir is the largest mammal found in Mexico and South America. As if a nose and upper lip that stick straight into the air isn’t ugly enough, they also have four toes on the front feet and three toes on the back.
7. Proboscis Monkey
The proboscis monkey is on the endangered species list. Their long, protruding noses are used to honk in a form of communication with other monkeys.
6. Celestial Eyed Gold Fish
Goldfish remind us of a small, cute pet fish. This is hardly the case with the celestial eyed gold fish. With eyes larger than their stomachs, they can be quite frightening.
