Humans will be in serious trouble if a global nuclear war breaks out. Sadly, we lack the radiation resistance necessary to survive a nuclear explosion, and most of us would no longer survive such disasters.
However, on our planet there are animals that can endure unusually high levels of radiation or starvation (or both). This article will list the animals with the best survival skills and other interesting facts.
Scorpions are eight-legged invertebrates belonging to the class Arachnida. Scorpions are characterized by a tail with a poisonous hook. They are cultural symbols with the image of Scorpio in the 12 zodiacs of the West and the gods in Egypt.
Scorpions have existed on Earth for millions of years and are still thriving. They are often detected in cracks and burrows, which increase the chances of survival and provide some extra protection from radiation and its consequences. Due to their inherently ideal shape, scorpions have a high degree of resistance and have remained largely unchanged throughout their evolution.
# Fish Mummichog
The Mummichog fish is a species of fish in the Killi fish group distributed in the Atlantic Ocean, including from the coast of the United States to Canada. This is a special fish, in that most fish stay away from the filthy, oxygen-deficient waters, but for them alone, this is an ideal habitat.
Mummichog fish can be seen in the Atlantic Ocean off the coasts of the United States and Canada. Mummichog differs from ordinary fish in that they can live in any environment regardless of whether it is polluted, hot, cold or filled with chemicals. They have been sent to the space station and are still alive. In 1973, they were brought to the space station to test their viability: they swim and reproduce as normal.
Their ability to turn their genes on and off as needed correlates with their ability to survive. This allows the fish to withstand any chemical composition, any temperature and any salt content. To adapt to the new environment, they have been seen “redesigning” different body parts.
Ants are a family of insects in the order Membrane. Species in this family are highly social, capable of living in large colonies of up to millions. Many ant colonies can also spread over a very large area of land, forming super corporations. Ants have 12,000 different species, living in a variety of environments and temperatures around the world. This creature is thought by scientists to be able to survive in a variety of temperatures, pressures and weather patterns.
In almost all weather conditions, including the Sahara desert, ants can still survive normally. The ocean is also home to aquatic ants. There have been many studies that suggest that this organism can survive in a wide range of temperatures, constant pressure, extreme weather, etc., which ensures their survival.
Ants have developed a special ability that allows them to identify sick members of their nest, so they are always ready to face the apocalypse. According to a study, ants will “sacrifice” or kill other ants if they believe they are sick or infected, this is the way to prevent disease from spreading throughout their colony.
Since people are scattered all over the world, if a nuclear war occurs, it is less likely that everyone will be affected by radiation. In addition, humans have many opportunities to run to shelters to avoid radiation, so the ability to sustain life is high.
