Matt Simon is a writer and editor at Wired. , Having graduated from UC Davis and before moving to Wired he was–no joke–a copyeditor at a marketing firm for dentists. Since September , 2013 he’s been doing the “Absurd Creature of the Week” column, in which he profiles the weirdest, grossest, and most beautiful critters on Earth. It was the inspiration for his book, which will be out from Penguin in fall 2016, about evolution’s most bizarre solutions to problems. The eel-like hagfish, for example, releases a massive cloud of mucus when attacked, which clogs the gills of the predator, potentially killing it. Problem solved.
