Bouvier Des Flandres

These are the dogs that look like Gremlin. I'm actually a little afraid of it.

This dog is a herding dog breed and it originates from Flanders. These are basically used for farms works including sheep herding, cattle droving, and cart pulling.

The name Bouvier des Flandres is French. It means "Cow Herder of Flanders" literally. Toucheur de Boeuf (cattle driver) and Vuilbaard (dirty beard) are the other names for this breed.

I personally find it a bit off-putting when my dog looks like a household cleaning tool. Just soak him in some Pine-Sol and slide him around, you'll have a shiny floor in no time!

Komondor are also called as Mop Dogs (seriously!). These are large white-colored Hungarian breeds of livestock guardian dog with a long, corded coat.

One bad thing with this dog is that once a Komondor gets away with unfriendly or hostile behavior, it will always think such behavior is appropriate. Hence, regular rectifications even with a very young puppy are essential to ensure a well-balanced adult.

Ugly Bat Boy cat

If there is one cat in this whole world that draws every client's attraction at Exeter Vet Clinic that the clients can just not to put their eyes off it then I am telling you that Cat Name will be "Ugly Bat Boy". It is sooooo. . . Gully, I meant!

It is looks so unique in its own way. Its whole body is bald except the chest where the fur flows down giving it a freaky, creepy and weird look.

To me, this ugly animal looks like a mythical beast. I at times even wonder, could it be a part of Sphynx breed? or may be this could be a Donskoy breed? I leave the discussion up to you now and let you see the pictures:

Frilled Shark

Sharks! When the hell have they been cute, huh? :)

This Frill Shark is the ugliest of all the sharks out there. Wikipedia says,
The frilled shark was first scientifically recognized by German ichthyologist Ludwig Döderlein, who visited Japan between 1879 and 1881 and brought two specimens to Vienna.
This shark is named so because it has 6 pairs of gills that are collar-like with frilly edges. Deep down the sea within 160 to 660 feet (50 - 200 meters) in Japan (Saruga Bay in specific), these Frilled Sharks mostly eat up the squids.

I never used to hate turtles. They are really innocent creatures and loveable too EXCEPT fo MataMata.

What? "Mata Mata"?? Yes, It means "Kill! Kill!" in Spanish. This MataMata turtke is unquestionably a killer. This inauspicious animal has a lengthy neck along with warts (verrucas) and ugly fleshy folds. It also has a prominent big flat head and a projecting snorkel shaped nose. This nose is helpful for this snorkel breather to breathe under the water.

During 1947, it was a French Scientist, who named (I mean described) this ugly animal as "large land turtle with spiky and ridged scales".

Guess what? This ugly matamata is a flesh-eating animal. These love aquatic invertebrates and fish! Enough with the theory now let us look how ugly these animals are:

Aye-Aye is one of the world's rarest and freaky looking primates. In case you are wondering what "primates" are:
Primates are animals order including lemurs and tarsiers and monkeys and apes and human beings
This ugly animal is considered as foretell of misfortune by the locals. The Malagasy people believe that Aye-Aye is witching and it will bring death to the village wherever it is found in. Due to this superstition, people tend to kill these Ugly Animals on their sight. It has five-fingered hands, flat nails, with a middle finger that is thrice the length of the others.

Would you call me weird if I say I think Aye Aye are cute? :P

Giant Isopod

Be Honest and tell me what does this picture look like to you?

A Predator? An Alien? A re-shaped Piranha?

This Predator resembling creature is a Giant Isopod and is one of the Ugly Animals. Its scientific name is "Bathynomus giganteus" (Who cares? :)). It is a carnivorous (flesh-eating) crustacean (Being or having or resembling a hard crust or shell). This Ugly Animal passes its time cleaning the deep ocean floor, up to 6,000 feet down on the sea floor where literally is no light at all. This lives by eating the dead, decayed fishes and other marine animals.

Snake Fish

Snake Fish really deserves all it takes to be this Ugly Animals blog. If I miss out Snake Fish then I should quit blogging about Ugly Animals :D

Really, this Snake Fish is so horrible looking. It was during 2002 when it was described as "Channidae" (Showy perennial of marshlands of eastern and central North America having waxy lanceolate leaves and flower with lower part creamy white and upper parts pale pink to deep purple).

This Ugly Animal has excessively greedy and grasping appetite. It eats all other fishes in the water and even consume its young ones. It can slide across land and has the ability live out of water for up to 3 days for seaching new sources of food.. Now that is a NEWS, Isn't it?

Another shocking thing about these ugly animals is, The snake fishes when they are on land can eat nearly any small animals that comes in its way. While most of the snake fishes are of two to three feet in lenght wikipedia says that they can be up to a meter long and over six kilograms weight.

Here are a few pictures for your (dis)pleasure :)
