8 Ugliest Animals in the World

Not every animal is as cuddly as a giant panda or as extravagant as a peacock, but every animal has its role to play and every organism is important. We have a selection of 8 ugliest animals on the planet for you.

Oyster toadfish or Fish-frog: A small and very unattractive fish-frog lives in the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic oceans. Outwardly resembles a fish-drop, only a little less sad and optimistic.



Purple frog: Purple frog was discovered by scientists in 2003. This species is a living fossil, it lives in the Western Ghats. Its habitat, a tiny area of ​​14 square kilometers. The closest relatives of this brown lump of mucus lives thousands of miles to the west - in the Seychelles. This frog leads a reclusive life, eats termites and comes to the surface a few times a year, only to mate.



Goblin shark: Another inhabitant of the oceans that's extremely unattractive. The shark got it's name because of its nose and mouth with a retractable thin crooked teeth. This shark is extremely aggressive, and will eat just about everything that moves.



Blobfish: When God created all living things, and saw that "it is good", he just did not notice the Blobfish. This creature has the sadness that no comedian can wash off. Blobfish lives off the coast of Australia, at a depth of about one kilometer, it is under threat of extinction.



European anglerfish or monkfish: This deep-sea animal, can live at depths of up to half a kilometer, and is edible, especially in France. It has a dense white meat without bones, that's very popular in restaurants. This fish is yet to work out a plan to hide from humans, so they are easily caught, right now their numbers are declining rapidly.



Platypus: Beaver, duck bill and poisonous spurs on their hind legs - what could be worse. Platypus is one of the few venomous mammals, who can seriously injure their abusers just by touching them. Platypus venom is deadly to small animals and can cause huge and unbearable pain that can last for several months to humans. However, this animal is loved by Australians, they even got it's face on a 20 pence coin.  



Aye-aye: It has an elongated body with slender legs, which clings to the branches of trees. Such unpleasant appearance can not explain very beautiful hair that puffs up on the head. On the other hand, the Aye-aye has some enchanting charm and charisma. Even though he is not handsome, his middle finger will out rank any human who wants to give you an F sign.



Naked mole rat: Curious feature of excavators is their immunity to cancer and insensitivity to certain types of physical effects: they did not respond to thermal and chemical burns, can live at prohibitively high concentration of carbon dioxide. Naked mole rats have a strict internal hierarchy between individuals and complex social systems. With this organization, and stamina it is not surprising that naked mole rats can live up to thirty years.




Man Saves Stranded Great White Shark, Amazing Footage!

The 10 Healthiest Foods on the Planet


These 10 super-foods are proven disease fighters and energy boosters according to our pals at fitnessmagazine.com.

Lemons: Just one lemon has more than 100 per cent of your daily intake of vitamin C, which may help increase 'good' HDL cholesterol levels and strengthen bones. And the citrus flavonoids found in lemons may help inhibit the growth of cancer cells and act as an anti-inflammatory.

Broccoli: One medium stalk of broccoli contains more than 100 per cent of your daily vitamin K requirement and almost 200 per cent of your recommended daily dose of vitamin C -- two essential bone-building nutrients. The same serving also helps stave off numerous cancers.

Dark chocolate: Just one-fourth of an ounce daily can reduce blood pressure in otherwise healthy individuals. Cocoa powder is also rich in flavonoids, antioxidants shown to reduce ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol and increase ‘good’ HDL levels.

Potatoes: One red potato contains 66 micrograms of cell-building folate -- about the same amount found in one cup of spinach or broccoli. One sweet potato has almost eight times the amount of cancer-fighting and immune-boosting vitamin A you need daily.

Salmon: A great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been linked to a reduced risk of depression, heart disease and cancer. A three-ounce serving contains almost 50 per cent of your daily dose of niacin, which may protect against Alzheimer's disease and memory loss.

Walnuts: Contain the most omega-3 fatty acids, which may help reduce cholesterol, of all nuts. Omega-3s have been shown to improve mood and fight cancer; they may protect against sun damage, too (but don't skip the SPF!).

Avocados: Rich in healthy, satisfying fats proven in one study to lower cholesterol by about 22 percent. One has more than half the fiber and 40 percent of the folate you need daily, which may reduce your risk of heart disease.

Garlic: Garlic is a powerful disease fighter that can inhibit the growth of bacteria, including E. coli. Allicin, a compound found in garlic, works as a potent anti-inflammatory and has been shown to help lower cholesterol and blood-pressure levels.

Spinach: Spinach contains lutein and zeaxanthin, two immune-boosting antioxidants important for eye health. Recent research found that among cancer-fighting fruits and veggies, spinach is one of the most effective.

Beans: Eating a serving of legumes (beans, peas, and lentils) four times a week can lower your risk of heart disease by 22 percent. That same habit may also reduce your risk of breast cancer.
