The Wasp That Brainwashed the Caterpillar by Matt Simon

Posted by Erik Nilsson, May 2017

Author: Matt Simon   Narrator: Jonathan Todd Ross   Language: English    Category: Science & Technology

Biology  

From the man behind the popular Wired series “Absurd Creature of the Week”, a fun, fascinating collection of unique animals and the unbelievable evolutionary traits they use to survive the most extreme scenarios. The Wasp That Brainwashed the Caterpillar is an absurdist, comical romp through evolution’s weirdest solutions to – appropriately enough – the hazards that evolution itself produces. Each original entry talks about a creature and its amazing adaptation, using Matt Simon’s signature blend of scientific accuracy and humor that has made his Wired column and accompanying web show so popular. The creatures themselves are absolutely mind-blowing, with zombie ants mind-controlled by a fungus; beautiful salamanders that can regenerate any part of their bodies including their brains; the mantis shrimp, which fires its club-like appendage so fast that the surrounding water becomes as hot as the surface of the sun; the Antechinus, whose runaway testosterone levels cause them to have so much sex during their three-week mating session that they bleed internally, go blind, and drop dead; and many more.

Audible user reviews

Audible’s users are totally in love with the service!

“One of my favorite apps. I drive alot and Audible lets me get through a ton of books. They are great about returning books I don’t like. I also love that I can put it on any device and pick up right where I left off.”

“Just wonderful, I never had time to read except in the 10 minutes before bed, by then I’m already falling asleep and have to re-read the next night as it didn’t retain. Now I can listen to books while travelling, doing the housework, getting ready for work each morning. I’m getting through all the books I’ve been meaning to read for years in just a couple of months.”
