Seriously, though, were there any grossly non-humanoid aliens that were UFP members?
Canonically, Arcadians, the Ariolo, the Bzzit Khaht, the Kasheeta, and the Zaranites are Federation Members, and they're awfully alien. Then there are the Antedeans, the Anticans, and the Selay were all in the process of gaining Federation Membership.

In the novels, the Federation also includes species like the multi-tentacled Sulamid, the jellyfish-like Selenans, the repilian Saurians, the teddy bear-ike S'ti'ach, the tripedal Triexians, the aquatic amphibious Selkies, the Velociraptor-like Pahkwa-thanh, the pillbug-like Nasat, the hideous Medusans, the diminutive Evora, the merpeople-like Aonis, and, of course, the famous rock-eating Horta.
