Name: Arctic Wolf (Canis lupus arctos)
Location: Canadian Arctic and the northern parts of Greenland
Size: 1.8 m long, 79 cm high weight: 75 kg
Diet: Caribou, musk oxen, Arctic Hares, seals, ptarmigan, lemmings. Arctic wolves eat all their prey, also its bones and fur
Conservation status: common. They still live in the whole of its original range, because local conditions are too extreme for humans.
Interesting facts: mother gives birth to some 2-3 pups in May. Pups are born almost black as they get older, colour of their fur turns to white. Adults are completely white, even in summer | arctic wolves live in the pack of some 7-10 members. Only alpha male and alpha female mate | arctic wolves have shorter ears and nose than other wolves species. They also have thicker fur, shorter legs | they do not run too fast, their advantage is persistence

The original designs, now outdated, were by GE (we have 23 just like them operating in the US now). GE specified the location, even though some on-site engineers had some doubts; architecture and construction was carried out by Japanese companies, and it was owned and operated by a Japanese company. The problems with siting, accidents, reporting of incidents, regulatory standards, are not unique to Fukushima -- they are par for the course in the nuclear industry worldwide. Just to name one disaster-in-waiting, there is a leaky reactor located on a fault line within 50 miles of New York City.

Well, how I saw, it affected not only a health. He was healthy, as they worked in short shifts, and every squad was there about a month, until changed by a next one. But he never likes to speak about it, all the speech like 'some returned healthy, some lost a hairs, some died in a few months' & so. Looks like it' a severe strike on psychic. Not a radiation. Fear of it, & watchin' a consequences.
