In the animal world, as in our own, looks aren’t everything. In fact, some of the most aesthetically challenged creatures — from warthogs and proboscis monkeys to bull elephant seals — are also the most fascinating. A stunning variety of these ghastly yet glorious forms are explored in NATURE’s The Beauty of Ugly.
From hagfish to naked mole rats, warthogs to proboscis monkeys to the ugliest bug in Oklahoma, NATURE explores how and why ugly can be beautiful — even when it isn't pretty.
