Ugly Ducting is the twenty-ninth stage in the classic Donkey Kong  game, Donkey Kong Land III. It is also the fifth area of the Tin Can Valley.

Taking place in a damp and dark pipeline, the primates will begin the stage underwater. They will have to swim through the bleak pipeline through the first half of the stage, possibly meeting some dead-ends. As they swim through this area, they will encounter the enemies, Lurchins, Bounty Basses, and Kocos. In the second half of the stage, the primates will begin to explore the dry areas of the stage. There, they will be able to turn into Squawks the Parrot and fly through a short maze of pipes. As the bird makes his way around the twists and turns of the stage, he will encounter the normal enemies such as BuzzesKobbles and Krimps.


  • This stage is named after the fable The Ugly Duckling.
