Come one come all to a special collection of ecological misfits and mutants. What you see here is combination of evolutionary cluster f#%Ks and human meddling. The countdown begins with….
#1 Blob Fish: Blog is nasty indeed, but under the crushing depths of the ocean, his fatty, gelatinous body keeps him buoyant as a buoy.
#2 Panda Cat: She’s cute, cuddly, and eats nothing but fish flavored bamboo shoots.
#3 Sam: This wretched creature was the winner of Sonoma-Marin County Fair World’s Ugliest Dog Contest.
#4 Yeti Crab: Despite the snowly look of this peculiar crustacean, he makes his home by deep-sea hydrothermal vents and cold seeps.
#5 Schwarzenegger Cow: This cow would fit right into professional cycling right now. Hell, he could have been Lance’s personal trainer. He became the man bull he is today from generations of selective breeding and a balanced diet.
#6 Sea Pig: This puffy piggy (by the latin, Scotoplanes) lives on deep ocean bottoms, specifically on the abyssal plain in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean, typically at depths of over 1000 meters.
#7 Beefalo: The beefalo is a hybrid; a mix between a buffalo and cow.
#8 Dumbo Octopus: Out of all cephalopods, the dumbo octopus lives the farthest below sea level, up to 7000 meters below.
#9 Starnosed Mole: Found in wet low areas of eastern Canada and the northeastern United States, this abomination to visual aesthetics might be the nastiest mammal I’ve see yet.
#10 Angora Rabbit: If you ever get one of these as a pet, for the sake of everything that is good and creative, don’t name it snowball.
