    I’ve heard that animals aren’t just living in the exclusion area, they’re actually thriving! This doesn’t really mean anything for us, since the radiation levels are obviously still far to high for us to be going there, but it’s good to know (and quite interesting) that animals are able to do so well there despite the whole “deadly radiation” thing. Although maybe I’ll be eating my words a few years from now when the animals are walking around with all kinds of mutations… we’ll just have to wait and see.
