The other four …

And these are the other four of the Ugly Five

Collage 4 Uglies

…. Warthog, Hyena, Marabou Stork and Vulture. An exclusive and pretty ugly club!

The fifth Ugly One is the Wildebeest (see blog https://sperka.info/2014/04/24/the-ugly-five/)

  1. I have to agree with you on these four! They all serve a purpose, I’m sure. But I think that the warthog proves that God has quite a sense of humor!

  2. You make a good case for the old adage “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. I consider the wildebeest an extremely handsome antelope (though not necessarily photogenic). Nor would today’s four be at the top of my list of the Ugly Five.

  3. Although my earlier comment is still “awaiting moderation”, may I share the following thoughts: The animals we see in the bush today are the (current) product of natural selection and evolution. Features considered “ugly” i.e. grotesque, frightening, ridiculous, etc. have generally evolved to give the animal the best chances for survival in its given environment. I hope that when you drew up your “Ugly Five” list you were planning to offer such information at a later date. I’d say that could well be fascinating.

  4. Just to clarify …

    … This was just a bit fun 🙂 – The UGLY FIVE is not my invention it is actually a grouping created long time ago and used often as a term in the guiding community.

    … I personally do not think they are all ugly. As many of you have commented, beauty is in the eye of the beholder (and so is ugliness 🙂

    I hope you enjoyed the images anyway!
