Ever imagined of a beauty competition among the animals. In an apparent declaration of the ugliest animal in the world, the Ugly Animal Preservation Society has named the grumpy-looking, gelatinous blobfish as its official mascot.
Due to its cranky look, Blobfish has won a public vote for the ugliest animal. After being named as the official mascot of Ugly Animal Preservation Society, the fish gets the unofficial title of world’s ugliest animal.
The society began as a science-themed comedy night and devised its mascot campaign to draw attention to “aesthetically challenged” threatened species.
The winner was announced at the British Science Festival in Newcastle.
The blobfish tops a list that includes the huge-nosed proboscis monkey, the similarly afflicted pig-nosed turtle, an amphibian affectionately known as a “scrotum frog” and pubic lice.
