Which is most disturbing? Cuteness, ugliness, or the gray area between?

Cute Overload has daily pictures of baby animals, plus numerous "rules" for cuteness -- "Dangle your paw," or "Have suction cups on your hands."

At the other end of the spectrum, Live Science takes a poll for the world's ugliest animal. (Hat tip to Mental Floss.)

In between, the usually reliable Lindsay Beyerstein claims that these cuttlefish are cute. I think they're ugly. Maybe it depends on how you squint.

Finally, despite the source, this multilegged creature is not a right-wing economist.
