World’s Weirdest Animal Faces celebrates the unsung and downright freaky members of the animal kingdom, and explores the amazing purpose behind their grotesque forms. Anatomy doesn’t have to be attractive to be well adapted, and when we look at life through the lens of evolution it’s clear the weirdest of traits are almost always wonderful. Every proboscis has a purpose and every wrinkle a reason. In nature, there’s perhaps nothing so useful as being ugly. Wildbear Entertainment for National Geographic Channels (International)

They may be ugly but they are amazingly well adapted. UNDER THE SEA

They may not be the prettiest of creatures but those ugly attributes enable them to survive in some of the planet's harshest environments. I WAS BORN THIS WAY

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and let’s hope that’s true for these not-so-cute-or-cuddly babies of the animal kingdom.
