    Australia: Pelicans (Pelecanus) are characterized by their large beaks and deep throat pouches, which they use to assist them in scooping fish out of the water when feeding. When they first hatch, pelican chicks are featherless with a proportionally large bill, bulging eyes - they definitely need to grow into their looks! This image is from World's Weirdest Animal Faces.

    Indo-Pacific Ocean: A Potato Cod (Epinephelus tukula) facing front on at the camera. The potato cod (also called the potato grouper) gets its name from the large potato-like dark spots over its body. Despite the sour face, potato cods are generally quite friendly, however as they can weigh up to 90 kilograms and can envelope their prey in a single gulp you wouldn't want to mess with one!
