While all animals are precious and important to our existence, some aren't as cute and cuddly as we'd expect. There are a lot of ugly animals out there, from the naked mole rat to the woolly bat. Some animals are extremely difficult to look at without getting nauseous. Here are just a few of the world's ugliest animals.
The Naked Mole Rat
Sure, Rufus from Kim Possible was downright adorable, but the reality is that these guys are truly horrific to look at and slimy to the touch. Rufus, it seems, was the best thing to happen to the species. They are one of nearly 30 different species of mole rat and live in large communities, led by a queen. The queen's main purpose is to procreate and raise more young, ugly, mole rats.
