The Ugly Animals: We Can’t All Be Pandas

The Ugly Animals: We Can’t All Be Pandas

This book from well-known biologist and comedian Simon Watt pays homage to the world’s most unattractive but endangered creatures.


Featuring the rarest animals from all corners and depths of the globe, Watt reminds us of the urgent need for the continued conservation and protection of these fascinating species.


Meet the blobfish, whose slimy exterior and downturned mouth looks unusually melancholy, or the pink velvet worm, who uses facial slime cannons to catch its dinner.


The weird and wonderful are given their long-overdue chance to shine in this celebration of animals not usually at the forefront of conservation efforts.

A fun book of bizarre creatures Review by Naomi
I got this for my nephew. The pictures are great and there are so many animals that aren't normally talked about. (Posted on 12/12/2018)
