20+ Weirdest and Ugliest-Looking Animals on Earth

These are the weirdest and ugliest animals you will ever see.

Animals, like humans, have a classification in a degree of beauty and ugliness. In the wonderful world of animals, many animals appear to be weird, odd, and even have an ugly look that would probably kill you while looking at them.  Most people will not even give those extremely weird and ugly animals a second look. In the worst cases, these innocent animals are being killed, slaughtered or tortured because their weird look made people could not bear to look at them. As for the animal protection and rights organization, they feel a concern in the sharp decline of these weird animals as people pay no attention and care for them.

Here, I would like to say that these ugliest animals have the right to survive on any piece of land scattered across the earth. Their weird appearance is probably one of the ways they sustain their species on earth. Therefore, we should pay equal treatment to then while   dealing with these weird animals just like we would treat other living organisms. They do have their rights to ensure their continuity of species on earth. Neither graceful nor beautiful, these animals are nonetheless very unique and remarkable animals.

Matamata Turtle

The Matamata Turtles (Chelusfimbriatus) dwells particularly in the stagnant pools in Brazil and the Guianas. Its species can also be found in parts of the Amazon River, Peru, Venezuela and Trinidad. It has a bizarre look, with its straight-line shell length that reaches to 18 inches (46cm) or more. Its head and neck are flat and large, but are covered with warts, ridges and protuberances. The long snout enables it to breathe while almost completely submerged. The female turtle usually can breed to 12-28 round, hard-shelled eggs with each egg nearly 3.5-4cm in diameter in rivers or on high ground near the banks of small creeks. The incubation takes as long as 208 days.

Dobsonfly

This picture shows a larva (hellgrammite) of Dobsonfly (corydalus sp.) viewed under a scanning electron microscope with the enlargement power of 10 to 500 times from its original size. Through the high powered microscope, humans have viewed some shocking scenes that the human eye itself is limited to seeing.

Dobsonfly inhibits throughout the Americas, particularly in the north and central part of America, and in Asia, Australia and Africa. This insect can be rather weird and frightening in its appearance. Both male and female Dobsonflies can grow up to the length of 5 inches (12.5cm), and have long antennae. When they do not use the wings, they will be folded along the length of their walking stick-like bodies. The female can breed between 100 to 1,000 eggs on a branch or on rocks near a stream.

    Ewwe! The aphid and the evil Weevil are creepy looking but interesting. I liked the “allmouth” the best, if it’s a female, hopefully that thing doesn’t have vocal chords. haha.

    The last one looks very similar to a White’s Tree Frog, which do turn brown on occasion.


  8. Mars Says...

    +1 FOr jEFf it’s a very fat Litoria Caerulea, an Australian tree frog.

    That unknown creature reminds me of Meatwad from Aqua Teen. Maybe it’ll morph into a hot dog or an igloo.

    Take a look at a “pangolin.” Very interesting as well.


  19. EHtesh Says...

    On July 7, 2008 at 2:53 pm

    Weird, I’ll agree, but I don’t think any of those are particularly ugly. The Dobsonfly is borderline, though. The Weevil and Almiqui actually look pretty cool.


  20. R J Evans Says...

    On July 7, 2008 at 4:55 pm

    They sure is ugly!

    Congratulations on being at the top, but it couldn’t go to a harder working individual.

    Some of these creatures actually border on kind of cute, but most of these could give one nightmares.

    i wouldnt wana meet the weevil… i believe his name has its purpose…too bad the almiqui is extinct, it looks kinda cute, in a way, well at least the fur does


  30. where's the editor? Says...

    On July 9, 2008 at 1:05 pm

    The author obviously has a poor command of the English language.

    Somebody needs to check his/her work in future


  31. No Wonder Says...

    On July 9, 2008 at 7:27 pm

    To # 30

    Don’t say bad word towards the author. I appreciate the author’s work to provide us such a beautiful and comprehensive article. I hope, others too, will appreciate the author’s hard work.

    If you want to comment someone, sit down and think, whether you can write in this way. It’s not an easy task to do!


  32. Leandro Says...

    On July 10, 2008 at 2:34 am

    Lol, Axoltl is nice. There’s a story written by Julio Cortázar about them. NICE ONE.


  33. Smarter Child Says...

    On July 13, 2008 at 10:00 am

    Nice article there…
    You certainly are free

  34. to #31 Says...

    On July 15, 2008 at 2:16 pm

    Don’t be so sensitive.

    It is, in fact, a very easy task, for a professional writer, to ask for help if you don’t speak English properly.

    You know, #30, your English ain’t so hot, either.

    Are you the author?

    how cute they all are! :)


  39. zedone2 Says...

    On July 16, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    i would say that the Almiqui looks more like the New Zealand Kiwi than a rat.
    see link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiwi
    although you cannot see a side picture of the Kiwi in this site, the kiwi looks similar, although the Almiqui has sharp teeth and is green in colour.
    A very good web page. some interesting facts in here.


  40. Anne Lyken-Garner Says...

    On July 17, 2008 at 5:45 am

    Nice compilation. I first saw these animals on an article on Digg (recently) and I didn’t (and still don’t) think that they are particularly ugly, maybe a bit different from what we’re used to, but not ugly.


  41. SuperMoose Says...

    On July 17, 2008 at 3:10 pm

    Those are some ugly bugs… was the cuban rat thing thought extinct or actually extinct?


  42. SonnyD Says...

    On July 17, 2008 at 4:33 pm

    Very cool stuff! Very interesting to see animals that may have been extinct.

  45. karl Says...

    On July 18, 2008 at 8:08 pm

    pretty educational peng!!

    I really like the idea that every animal or species have the right to live. Every one of ‘em are wonderful creatures of God that has its own purpose in the ecosystem.

    On March 6, 2012 at 11:55 pm

    Did anyone else notice that they said “The almiqui has been extinct for many years” and then continued on about where it’s living? I get that they meant “thought to be extinct” but that’s not how it came out and I just thought it was funny. Oops.

    On March 7, 2012 at 12:21 am

    if there is a picture of a creature on the Internet, then it is not “as of yet unknown.” if someone discovered it, they named it. Ppl-biologists, whatever-dont find creatures and decide not to bother classifying them bc they’re ugly.
