Fukushima disaster-site, a breeding ground for mutated butterflies
Mutated insects are cool so long as they stay fictional and limited to comic books. When these begin turning into a reality, even the stone-hearted are bound to shrink away in fear. The Fukushima nuclear-plant disaster did leave a wave of despair and suffering in its wake and still continues to do so, with the sight now playing a nesting ground for mutated butterflies! Pale blue grass butterflies are a common sight in most parts of Asia. However, a recent report has found these butterflies in the disaster-hit area growing with severe physical deformities including forked antennae, twisted legs, bent wings and the like, many of which spell doom for these otherwise-beautiful creatures. And yes, besides just mutated butterflies, the Fukushima disaster has indeed played havoc with the environment around as a whole, with many plant species being exposed to radiation that still hasn’t exposed its complete repercussion!
