The Night's Films

The Beauty of Ugly: 55 Minutes - We may think we know what is beautiful and what isn’t, but in the natural world, beauty can be many things, including what we might find completely repulsive. Not only can the bizarre be attractive, it can also provide just the edge a creature needs to succeed in a difficult environment. From frogfish and hagfish to the ugliest bug in Oklahoma, we learn how and why ugly can be beautiful, even when it isn’t pretty. (Watch Preview)
