Endangered Kakapo Bird Named One of World’s Ugliest Animals

The endangered kakapo bird of New Zealand was named one of the top five ugliest animals in the world by the Ugly Animal Preservation Society. The kakapo is the world’s only flightless parrot and the large, clumsy birds are known for being too curious for their own good. Less than 130 of the birds remain in their native island habitats.

The deep-sea Blobfish, which looks something like a grumpy, large-nosed pile of pink gelatine, won the honor of becoming the mascot of the society, hence taking the coveted title of the world’s ugliest animal.

The Ugly Animal Preservation Society was originally formed as a science-themed comedy night with the mission of drawing attention to more “aesthetically challenged” threatened species. Everyone knows the plight of blue whales and white tigers, the society pointed out, but not many people have heard of the huge-nosed proboscis monkey or the equally unattractive pig-nosed turtle.

The society’s founder, biologist Simon Watt, said it was his hope that the group and its ugly animal rankings would draw attention to the problems facing the strange and strange-looking creatures of this world.
