The tongue-in-cheek term "aesthetically challenged" could be used to describe a great deal of modern art, but there is nothing artistic about the Blobfish (Psychrolutes marcidus).

The serious message behind this competition is that all species deserved to be saved, not just the cute and cuddly ones. The Blobfish is now the official mascot of the Ugly Animal Preservation Society. CLICK to view the shortlist and learn more.
