These Animals Win the World's Ugliest Award!

Proboscis Monkey

The Proboscis Monkey is the Cyrano de Bergerac of primates, with a nose that looks like a deflated orange punching bag. Also unique is its honking sound, which it often makes in response to danger. At one time they numbered in the thousands in California, but as plastic surgery grew ubiquitous, they dwindled in numbers.
