Who takes care of the ugly animals?

Can ugly animals go extinct for lack of interest?

Well, there are plenty of ugly animals still around, so I'm not sure if that theory applies. But it is an interesting one! If an animal is SUPER ugly, would you feel sorry for it, to the extent that you would be more inclined to care for it, than you you would an animal that is just plain ugly? Some animals just seem to be proof that God has a wonderful sense of humor!

Lol, look at that little guy! I'd take care of it!

Anyway, back to your question.

Yes, there are people like entomologists, who study and attempt to preserve the creepy-crawly bugs and critters most of us either take for granted, or kill on sight.

Even the hard-shelled, slimy, and/or slithering creatures need some love. They might not get a lot of media coverage, but there are just as many important endangered species that are not furry, fuzzy or covered in feathers. And their extinction can have just as big, if not a bigger, impact on our world.

No, because their mother loves them :) You preceive an animal as ugly, but you are seeing it through your human eyes--a manatee is pretty strange looking, but to its love, it is a thing of beauty! look at a walrus! lol...

Cockroaches don't seem to have any problems about survival. They are ugly, not particularly appealing to many, and nobody takes care of them, yet they do not seem to go extinct.
