Nolan and I were looking at pictures from the World’s Ugliest Animals and I just HAD to post a few of our favorites from the new 2009 list. I’ve never seen or heard of most of them before, but they are too funny (and ugly) that I had to share! Nolan’s comments were so cute (he is five) and he learned about some funny new animals. The last animal picture I posted is just too scary for words. Which animal is your “favorite”?
This little guy looks more like a cartoon character than a fish. The Blob fish has very few muscles and move very slowly, floating like a jelly fish. To eat, the Blob fish waits on the bottom of the ocean for prey to pass by. Credits: ScienceDiscovery.com/ NORFANZ 2005

The lipstick won’t help. This ugly fish has quite a pout. They are terrible swimmers and use their pectoral fins to “walk” on the ocean floor.
The Star Nosed Mole
A resident of the North America, this mole makes up for his poor eyesight with a hairless nose that is a “star” of 22 fleshy tentacles. The tentacles are extremely sensitive, they can even sense electricity!
