"In the animal world, as in our own, looks aren't everything. In fact, some of the most aesthetically challenged creatures -- from warthogs and proboscis monkeys to bull elephant seals -- are also the most fascinating. A stunning variety of these ghastly yet glorious forms are explored in NATURE's 'The Beauty of Ugly'. On the Web site for the program, you'll get an in-depth look at some of these intriguing creatures. You'll learn about the remarkable sensory abilities of the weird little star-nosed mole and the unusual social system of naked mole-rats and their imperious mole-rat queen, discover the threats faced by the Cape Griffon vulture, and get a fish-eye's view of the needle-toothed viperfish and other deep-sea creatures, as photographed by a unique undersea camera called the Eye-in-the-Sea, designed by ocean researcher Dr. Edith Widder."
