8 Of The Ugliest Animals On Earth – There are some animals around the world that can be considered some of the cutest, the friendliest, or just the downright most amazing. Unfortunately, for every incredible animal, there is also one that is far too ugly to ever be a pet within a normal household. These are the type of animals that you run from when you see them slinking around in the forest, the plains, the water, or just about anywhere else. The things of nightmares do live on our planet sometimes.

Chikilidae – The Ugliest Animals On Earth
The Chikilidae is one of the ugliest species to grace our planet. The majority can be found around India, but some have been found elsewhere, too. The mother, which is shown here, is said to encircle her eggs for two to three months, foregoing all food during this time.
If you ever thought the Yeti was imaginary, think again. The Oriental Yeti is a hairless beast that sounds more like a cat, has a tail like a kangaroo, no fur, and could possibly be the very last of its kind. The creature was given a nickname after its capture in Sichuan Province in China on April 5th, 2010.
Turtles are generally cute, but this soft-shell turtle is far from it. With an elongated nose, a soft shell, and eyes that appear almost dead, this turtle is more hideous than adorable. If you see this one crawling around, perhaps it’s better to avoid it than to pet it.
Celestial Eyed Gold Fish
Gold fish are another species that appear rather adorable, but this particular variety is a bit scary. The eyes puff outward, allowing the fish to see in different directions. The eyes of the young tend to appear normal, but as they age they push out further.
Chinese Crested Hairless Dog
Dogs are one of the most common household pets, alongside felines, but the Chinese Crested Hairless Dog is rather ugly, to be honest. Some people will pride themselves on owning this particular canine, but other people may want to avoid petting it. The leathery skin may be rather gross.
Flies have never been considered a cute animal by any standards, but the Fruit Fly stands a cut above the rest of the species. These little atrocities manage to get into every crack and crevice within your home, seeping into the kitchen from seemingly nowhere.
Mexican Burrowing Toad
The Mexican Burrowing Toad grows up to 8 cm (3.15 inches) in length, and generally has red spots around its enlarged body. A red stripe down the center of the back is usually prominent, too. With short legs and a pointed head, this particular toad would be a surprise to come across in the dirt.
Bats are generally terrifying, especially when they manage to find their way into your home late at night. However, the idea of the Vampire Bat, which has a lot of mythological lore surrounding it, makes it a little more scary than the normal variety flapping around at night. Don’t fall asleep with this one in your house. It doesn’t need an invitation to get in.
