Life After Chernobyl

I was a total bonehead and did not watch all this, but what I did catch was interesting.
Some animals are adapting to the radiation in ways that can be observed. Truly fascinating.

Radiation could have increase the genetic mutation rate, thus some organisms could have presented beneficial traits to survive. Not all of them but the few that are still there.

RE: Life After Chernobyl
There was a species, the great tit, that started making antioxidants to combat the radiation effects. I'd need to see studies of bloodwork from outside the zone myself, but the implied this was happening in only 30 years.
