Ugly dogs @ Terra-Chã

Given the international aspect of the team currently present at the Azorean Biodiversity Group I will type this in english. This is a small post dedicated to the 2 ugly dogs that reside at the Terra-Chã "campus/WW II hospital", which is currently having its last days as a part of the University of the Azores since we are now moving to a new building, closer to Angra. The one thing about these dogs that really amazes me, and perhaps my colleague François Rigal, is that they are sooooo ugly!!! It really makes the day begin with a smile on the face once we see these dogs because we think "how can you be so ugly?" and these dogs should be quite a feat of nature! We will surely miss them when we leave in some days/weeks/months/years/centuries(?).
The short one s the dominant male, and according to Pedro Cardoso, his name is Javali ("wild boar"). :)
Forgive my mobile phone quality for these photos.
Well, I need to get back to sorting and packing arthropods for DNA analyzis. Reminder: need to ask Pardal for the frickin' photos for the remaining posts for the BALA II expeditions.
