The Ugly Animal Preservation Society has just named this “gelatinous glob of goo” the world’s ugliest animal. The four runners up are shown above. If you want to see what the other nominated animals look like (British bats, Dromedary jumping slug, European common eel, Flightless dung beetle, Pig-nosed turtle, and Greater short-horned lizard), click here.

The Ugly Animal Preservation Society is dedicated to raising the profile of some of Mother Nature’s more aesthetically challenged children. The panda gets too much attention.
