Identify these "awful" animals (with pics!)

I recently found a page called “The most awful creatures in nature”. It’s a collection of photos, with no labels or accompanying commentary, of strange-looking creatures. Some of them I recognize and some of them I don’t; some of them I suspect may be photoshopped or models of extinct creatures. Can you help me identify all the photos?

Here’s a list of the photos in order, with the ones I recognize in bold:

I just recently saw a documentary featuring #7, the Chinese giant salamander.

#24 is the goblin shark. #25 looks a lot like just the head of one of these sharks, maybe preserved in some fashion.

Sorry for the double post but after looking through all of them I can also identify #37, from the same documentary incidentally (it’s called Wild China. And those monkeys happen to be native to China). It’s a snub-nosed monkey, specifically either a black or gray snub-nosed monkey.

The one under the Isopod is a Sea Spider. (In fact, it’s the self-same picture of one used in Wikipedia’s article.)

17 and 18 are both some species of Grimpoteuthis “Dumbo Octopuses”.

ETA: #3 is an Armadillo Lizard

For #3: linkety-link (yes I know I’m late to the party)

Oh I forgot to link 17 & 18 too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDxBVZhZZwI (you really need video for this creature)

#1 – a species of tadpole shrimp http://www.fishpondinfo.com/shrimp2.htm#tadpole
#5 – Marabou Stork http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marabou_Stork
#12 – an immature shovelnose dogfish (sorry, no linkie)
I’ve got more, but I have to start work.

33 is a Mexican Mole Lizard aka Five Toed Worm Lizard

38 is actually a Cantor’s giant soft-shell turtle

42 looks like a Palo Verde beetle, but I’m not positive on that one
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derobrachus_geminatus
43 is a Giant Armored Trapdoor Spider

#21 is a shrieking eel.

Not really, it’s a Frilled Shark.

#36 is a pelagic sea slug, and shouldn’t be in a list of ugly creatures.

Three looks like a thorny devil, but I’m not sure…

I think some are quite cute, tbh.

#30 Orange-legged jungle centipede. They occur all over south-east Asia. I have been stung by one.

I think 3 is a thorny devil.

They can spit blood from their eye.

#20, the cow with the huge horns is a Watusi bull. Some more pictures of the record holder, which looks like the same animal:

BTW, should “most awful creatures in nature” include two pictures of domestic livestock?

Oh, and #10 is not a mudskipper. It is a batfish.

“Awful?” Come on. It’s not like they can help the way they look!

And a lot of them don’t even come close to looking like what I would call awful. Seriously - this? That’s like, one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. How could anyone call that awful?

Thanks to everyone who’s contributed so far. Here’s a revised list showing what’s been recognized (in bold) and what still needs identification. I’m particularly interested in the fish with giant spiked teeth.
