Don't forget to stop and eat the roses

That's a Javan langur or Javan lutung, showing us that even an ugly animal can appreciate beauty, as long as it's tasty beauty, anyway. They also enjoy the smell, according to their keepers at Howletts and Port Lympne Wild Animal Parks in Kent.

This is a primate that we've only seen once on this blog, which is way too infrequently, given that even the babies are so wrinkled that they look like they're a hundred years old:

Aside from the wrinkles, some have mottled faces that looks like some other kind of skin disease, they've got that nose that looks like they were in a terrible nose-losing accident, and to top it off, they sport a variety of perfectly awful hairstyles, like this one:

Truly an ugly animal that's got it all.
