The wildlife of Chernobyl

16 06 2016

“The Biologist” had a great piece last month (I’m catching up still) on the bears, boars, lynxes, rabbits, deer and other animals that have now taken over the abandoned, overgrown towns and surrounds of Chernobyl.  Apparently they are thriving in this radio-active environment. A tiny bit of me hopes they’ve developed cool superpowers. Telepathy maybe.
