In breaking News from the BBC, BBC News has announced the winner of a public vote to become the official mascot of the Ugly Animal Preservation Society!
The winner was announced at the British Science Festival in Newcastle, UK.
In keeping with my desire to keep you updated on the most important news stories you haven’t seen, the title of World’s Ugliest Animal goes to . . .
Are you ready . . .
It’s the . . .
Victoria Gill, a BBC Science reporter states:
“The blobfish eventually won by almost 10,000 votes.
The bizarre creature lives off the coast of south-eastern Australia and Tasmania, at depths of between 600 and 1,200m, where atmospheric pressure is several dozen times higher than at sea level.
Its gelatinous body is just slightly more dense than water, and it spends its life “bobbing around” in the depths.
It feeds on crabs and lobsters and so suffers a significant threat from fishing trawlers. Although it is inedible itself, it gets caught up in the nets.”
So, what do you think?
Seems to me, they made a good choice;)
