I have been a reading a recent magazine article that showed a thriving ecosystem in the immediate area adjacent to the Reactor. Apparently, Nature had managed survive and thrive in such a hostile envirnonment. Unfettered by man, the only (and most baffling phenomena) was that all living matter in that area recorded extremely high levels of radiation - what would normally be considered to be well in excess of a lethal dose.

Is this an expected phenomena?

This doesn't surprise me in the least. Time and time again when push comes to shove "life will find a way" to quote a decent novel and a medocre movie.

That doesn't make sense. The high level of radiation would cause too much mutation in the organism's genetic structure. Perhaps they are all short-lived creatures?

the pictures looked like a regular wood or forest, with all the creatures and organisms that you would normally find in such a place.

Actually the main health hazard isn't the minute amount of Radiation in a DU Shell(it's why they call it "Depleted"), it's the Urainium itself which is a heavy metal like Lead and in dust form can wreak havok.
