The greatest concentration of wildlife in Borneo, is found near Sandakan, along the lower regions of Sabah's biggest and longest river, the Kinabatangan. Orangutans, macaques, red and silver leaf monkeys, elephants, birds, eight species of hornbills, crocodiles, civet cats and otters are found in this region, but the most famous and most bizarre animal is the Proboscis monkey (a primate found only in Borneo). With its huge pendulous nose, a characteristic pot belly and strange honking sounds, it is one of the most peculiar and ugliest (or beautiful???) animals in the world. There is only one species of the proboscis monkey, Nasalis larvatus. The distinctive physical feature from which this monkey takes its name is the long pendulous nose of mature males. The Proboscis Monkey is found only in the coastal areas of Borneo and the Mentawai islands west of Sumatra living in coastal mangrove swamps and riverine forests on the lower reaches of major rivers coastal and mangrove forests.

I love monkeys. These aren't the cutest but they ain't ugly either. They remind me of something you would see in a Starwars Cantina scene.

GIant centapedes eating mice. Now that's ugly. Azamat naked? He could be the worlds ugliest primate.

This is for real... it was someone,s pet.
Not out of resident evil.. honest!!!

Sam, the tiny dog whose hairless body and crooked teeth earned him a reputation as the World’s Ugliest Dog

Sheesh.. I wouldn,t have slept in the same city as it.

Actually it died age 14 one year ago yesterday.
I,m suprised it lived so long too. It had to have had a genetic fault.. inbred maybe?

Hands-down the worlds ugliest homo-sapien on the planet is that midget child molester. I cant remember his name right now I'll go do a search.

posted on Dec, 5 2006 @ 09:52 AM
dude i know who your talking about, that child molester is so freaking goofy looking and scary.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww those poor poor ugly critters. Wonder if animals have 'beauty awareness'. If so, then we need to love the ugly ones even more, to help make up for their being ugly and make them feel better about themselves.

poor little guys!

Sam was crowned the ugliest dog on earth and he was a chinese crested. Chinese cresteds tend to lose their teeth very early due to the hairless factor(somehow related genetically) They are very sweet dogs, but, not so pleasant to pet. They get uglier as they age.

The one in my avatar is about 9 months old and this one was about 10 weeks old

This was is a couple of years old

Here is a powder puff version(has a full, non shedding coat) it is a littermate to the one with the punk rock mane in the first photo

i dont understand how something so fat and large as the proboscis monkey can climb a tree. that would be interesting to watch someday.

Please stay on topic: possibly the most ugliest animal on earth

That doesn't include making fun of pictures of retarded humans -- that has no place on this thread or any other ATS thread IMO.

I think we shouldn't laugh at other humans that have the misfortune of being charismatically challenged


On the upside this primate is pretty damn ugly if you ask me...

All the best,
