I've been around here a few years now, and I'm starting to think this "ugly-ass" description used in baby animal headlines is some kind of misdirection or something.

"ugly-ass" and fark are inextricably linked. 20 years ago all the headlines related to ugly-ass newborn animals. I believe Drew likes the phrase

The Packers could use her in their backfield.

OK, what does reticulating mean? I've only read it and assumed in context it meant a device appendage (or animal appendage) that had high mobility and could perhaps reduce its size by contracting (like a telescope) however no online definition that I can find agrees with this.

Reticulated, not reticulating.  Anyway, it just means it has a mesh or net like pattern.

These giraffes are like the regular kind, except the spots are so large that the white parts ends up being quite thin, so it looks like a mesh.  So, reticulated.
