    One creature that might be able to survive a nuclear disaster is a cockroach. They would have a higher chance of surviving the further they are away from the blast radius of the nuclear weapon. Since they perform cell division much slower than humans they have a much higher chance of surviving high levels of radiation associated with nuclear fallout. Slow cell division allows more time for cells to repair damage caused by radiation which makes cockroaches more resistant to radiation damage.
