There are many beautiful animals in the world, but what about the ugliest animals in the world? Today we’re going to share a list of some of the ugliest animals in the world.
The blobfish looks like a very ugly, overweight smurf character. It’s believed that the blobfish developed its unusual appearance because of its habitat—deep underwater caves with no light. Because there is little food down there for the blobfish, it hasn’t needed to evolve any survival skills. It also has very few predators in its deep water habitat. The blobfish is so ugly that there was a campaign launched to have the animal’s image banned from being used as a logo on fishing nets—they’re far too attractive for people to resist using them.
Chilean Rose Hair Tarantula
This tarantula is the largest species of spider in the world. They can be found in certain areas of southern Chile and there are some that live in Argentina too. While they may look pretty, these spiders have a nasty bite. Apparently, it’s quite painful to have one bite you because their fangs are extremely sharp and deep. It’s also said that they’ve been known to bite children when they’re playing with them.
The Chupacabra is a strange creature; there are many theories about what it is, but one thing we know for sure—it looks pretty gross! It’s believed that the Chupacabra is a vampire because of its habit of attacking and drinking the blood out of goats.
This salamander has some weird looking skin and looks more like a giant worm than an amphibian. The hellbender salamander usually lives in clean, clear rivers and streams and they can grow to be almost a foot long. Don’t let their appearance put you off; they are believed to be very friendly and quite hardy, so you can keep them as pets without any problems.
These slimy creatures look like they’re made out of snot. Their bodies are filled with slime sacks and when threatened or attacked, they can secrete this slime into water. This makes them very difficult to eat as they’ll just get slimed and wash up on the shore somewhere again! Apparently, hagfish make some of the most disgusting smells in the world and they’re said to smell like decaying fish carcasses.
They crawl out of their burrows at night and travel in packs to hunt other invertebrates that live in the sand, sea and mud. Their teeth are so long at the front of their jaw they actually curve round into the back of their mouth; you don’t want one chomping down on you!
This animal looks like a pig with an elephant trunk—it’s pretty ugly because of its big, pink body and huge mouth with enormous teeth. They can grow to be around 13 feet long and weigh an astonishing 3,000 pounds. Hippos are very aggressive animals; they’re known to attack people when they feel threatened or annoyed.
We hope this list of the ugliest animals in the world has enlightened you today to realize that some animals aren’t as beautiful as we think they may be. While these animals may be ugly, they’re a welcomed part of our environment as they play a role in the ecosystem of life.
