The Ugliest Animals Of The World

Ugly Dog


This Chinese crested pooch was spotted at the International Dogs exhibition in Moscow. Sorry, dog, no tongue is big enough to cover that ugly face.

Hairless Cat


Some things to look for on this cat: fox snout, shaved belly, awkward pose, rat tail. So much to see…

Matamata Turtle


The matamata turtle is one of the ugliest animals on the planet. Though they are soft-shelled, they are accomplished hunters. That smile is so misleading. Good camouflage

Hairless Dogs


This photo is getting us one step closer to rounding out our Sam collection. Look at the sidebar categories for more.

Long-beaked echidna


The Long-beaked echidna a species closely related to Attenborough’s long-beaked echidna from the Foja mountains in New Guinea.



Of the roughly 125 species of monkey out there, most are known for being mischievous and naughty, not for being evil. Any primatologists know what this fello is? I think this species will provide for a few more posts, and a few more nightmares.

A Frilled Shark



What you’re looking at is a frilled shark. This fish is rarely seen alive because they live at a depth of around 600 meters or more. That’s pretty deep. This particular specimen was accidentally caught by a Japanese fisherman, who then called the authorities. I can’t imagine what went though his head as he brought this eel-like shark to the surface. Frilled sharks, like many of its cousins, give live birth. It is estimated that they are pregnant for one to two years, which would give them the longest gestatation of any vertebrate – even longer than elephants. That is a claim to fame I’m sure no mother wants.

Baby Slenderloris


Perhaps, the most evolutionarily unique and endangered animals on the planet. Such animals include this slender loris, the pygmy hippo, and the bumblebee bat. Each of the species targeted have been identified as ‘one-of-a-kind,’ meaning, they are very distinct, evolution-wise. This uniqueness is being combined with their numbers in the wild (or lack thereof) to create a better plan to preserve them. I like the effort. I’m behind it. The world is full of kittens and puppies. We could use more bats and loris’ and pygmy animals.

Hatchet Fish Scales


This fish is colored dark on top, pale on the bottom, and silver on the sides. That makes it very difficult to see from any direction, at least underwater. I’m thinking of devising my own clothing line based on this camouflage principle. I’m just afraid it’s going to take a lot of hatchet fish scales to make even a simple trench coat – could be expensive.

Ribbon Eel



You’re looking into the face of the ribbon eel. This subset of the moray eel clan leads a very interesting life. For one, they are known to be the most sociable and peaceful of the morays. But get this: they start out blue and male. But as they mature, they become yellow and female.

Coconut Crab


I try to take my garbage cans to the curb during the daylight hours. That way I can see any spiders that might be lurking on the handles (and I’ve found quite a few, so my fears are warranted!).
But I would have to add a kevlar vest, a welder’s shield, and butcher’s gloves to my routine if I had to contend with the coconut crab. I can’t get enough of these monsters. I wonder if they make for good guard crabs. I’m sure they need less attention than a dog.



I can just imagine myself going for a swim in a Mexican river, a nice carne asada taco in my belly. I’m cruising along and enjoying myself when I stick my head underwater and see this staring back at me. I would assume that I had encountered the aquatic version of Chupacabra. I’d then prepare for my trip to the Underworld.

    Woah, a couple of those look made up, like the blobfish and hagfish.

    And yes, the Chinese Crested is one ugly dog. God knows why my brother just got one. It’s such a sweet dog, but it’s so frail and it feels a little too much like a hairy person.

    I don’t get this ugly trend. Ugly cars, ugly clothes, ugly pets. Yikes.

  6. MARIAH Says:

    I am sorry but some of those animals look made up but they look real. I have seen Sam and that fat cat that is sitting down like a human. If I had those animals i would try to fix them up by putting treatment on them and stuff like that because i feel bad for them because If I was a human and looked like that I would feel embarrassed annd remember this is MARIAH speaking thanks for my time!

  7. yashika Says:

    I think that it is very sad that some people think that is funny, because what if you looked like that you would be crying,it’s very disaponiting and unnormal that they would take picture of those animals.

  18. Aniqah Samirah Mohammed Says:

    Although these animals have very hideous appearances, they should all be treated equally just like all other cute animals because they are still all creatures of God.

  22. Defender Says:

    how can anyone say a Tarsier is ugly?! They are adorable prosimians of the Haplorrhini suborder. Their forward facing large eyes with protruding bone surrounding it are amazingly adorable. All of their unique features that separate them from the other infraorders of haplorrhini are adorable.

  23. Nazim Mohammed Says:

    They are very hideous but they still have feelings.

  24. Grayson890pie Says:

  34. Lilly Says:

    The dog titled “Ugly Dog” is probably the cutest one on this page!

    Don’t treat someone different just because they are different looking!!!

    They are beautiful creatures,& if you were one of the ugliest animals on the planet or one of the ugliest humans on the planet,You would feel pretty darn bad about saying all of this about these poor animals.
    & every single animal on this page is real!

  45. Reverend Marie Carew Says:

    No life on this planet is ugly. All creations are godly and beautiful. We are all born of the Earth which makes us all equal from the slug to the human being. What is ugly is the cruel intolerants that comes from the primitive minds of mankind.

  53. Louca-Mai Says:

  54. Louca-Mai Says:

    i have to dog for a pet

  55. John Says:

    I think tarsier is not ugly. Actually, if u really have seen this animal, you will probably say that it isn’t ugly at all. I have seen this in Bohol and they are really cute. they are just a mug tall animal and as big a mug too.

  56. Amy Says:

    Wow… So many of you judge these animals like they are supposed to make you feel better about yourself! It’s not nice to make fun of these animals; especially when WWF is doing all it can to save them. It’s bad that so many of you make fun but yet I wanna bet half of you or more are just as ugly.

  57. Ruby Hornsby Says:

    this is so funny! tiny bit cute, but soUGLY. LOL

  58. Ugly Animals Says:
