About the Show

Majestic animals we deem beautiful are well documented. Their stories are celebrated while we appropriate their regality, elegance and grace to adorn our company logos, be our sporting mascots and represent our families on crests. Then there's the other animals, the aesthetic outsiders we don't consider cute or cuddly. The critters we tend to laugh at or revile simply because they don't fit into what we deem as beautiful. The animals selected by natural selection to be beaten with the ugly stick and having faces only a mother could love. This is their time to shine. A celebration of respectable irreverence, revealing the extraordinary features these creatures possess who seem to be horribly disfigured but are in fact perfectly evolved, just very ugly.
