An ‘ugly’ sur­prise

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Your Feedback - Kate Den­ley, For­est of Dean

I was sur­prised to see the warthog was one of The Ugly Five in Ju­lia Don­ald­son and Axel Sch­ef­fler’s new book (Hey, Good Lookin’, Novem­ber 2017). Hav­ing watched The Lion King Dis­ney movie, I as­sumed that Pum­baa the warthog was a well-loved an­i­mal!

I fear that Don­ald­son and Sch­ef­fler may be dis­ap­pointed in their hope of en­cour­ag­ing sup­port for less at­trac­tive an­i­mals. Chil­dren may want to visit a zoo to see th­ese crea­tures but this in­ter­est does not of­ten con­tinue as they grow up.
