Biologists argue that attempts to save wildlife focuses too much on cute and cuddly mammals like the panda and dormice.

Instead they believe conservation efforts should focus on less attractive beasts that face far greater threats.

They have now drawn up a list of ugly animals they believe could become the new pin-ups to champion of worldwide conservation efforts.

Who says the proboscis monkey isn't cute? I've always had a soft spot for them because they're different.

Most people don't like things that don't conform to cute or fuzzy or realize their importance. They do it with people so animals get the shaft too. "Everything is beautiful in it's own way"
as the old song goes.
