What animals would look like if they had eyes at the front...

Strangely, more creepy than cute.
Some more than others.
Makes me wonder why primates have both eyes front.
Branch grabbing (safer in the treetops).
Squirrels can branch grab without eyes in front.
Wow, there could be several reasons. We may never know the actual reason why!
Early primates, for example, hunt by sight rather than by scent. Cartmill thought that the reduction in their ability to smell was a side effect of the eyes' convergence, simply because the space available for the nose and its connections to the brain became smaller as it was crowded out by the eyes.
