Marabou Stork – Is this One of the Ugliest Animals on the Planet?

This is a Marabou Stork, a bird we found at the Animal Resort Singapore.

With featherless head and with his lazy look it was walking here and there in his cage. It looks strange and it looks unhappy too. (for me)

Once mnn.com mentioned this bird as one of the ugliest animals on the planet.Is this true?

I think it looks strange than ugly. 🙂

Have you ever seen a Marabou Stork before?

That's an interesting "something" on its neck. I would have thought it swallowed something the wrong way.
