The blobfish is the winner of the world's ugliest animal contest.

The Ugly Animal Preservation Society needed a mascot and the blobfish won the online vote.

The fish looks a little like the "Star Wars" character Jabba the Hutt. It lives in the waters off Australia and grows to about 12-inches long.

No one has ever seen the fish eat but scientists think they probably just open its big mouth and lets particles drift in.
