Fugly Animal Friday: The Blobfish
So it's Friday, and I am thinking it may be fun to take a break from all the cute kittens and adorable puppies I see around the web and start a new series celebrating the ugly and the unusual.
So, I found this little creature, called a Blobfish.
The Fish Index says "The Blobfish or Psychrolutes marcidus is without a doubt in one of the ugliest fish in the ocean. These saltwater fish have what resembles a large nose in between two eyes and almost seem to be frowning! I guess with an ugly mug like that you would be frowning too. This deep sea fish is often found at extreme depths off of the coasts of Tasmania and Australia. For this reason the Blobfish is rarely seen by the human eye. " (Source: Fish Index)
So, what do you think? Is it cute or is it fugly?
