World's Ugliest Animal Is Kind of Cute

Look at that face! The Ugly Animal Preservation Society named this glob of goo—the blobfish—the world's ugliest animal. The society aims to draw awareness to at-risk animals who wouldn't normally receive attention because of their extreme unattractiveness. Simon Watt of the society stated that "indeed this is an ugly hideous thing. It looks sad and so it should, because it's suffering from severe problems." But when you look closely, it's actually really sweet!
