Are there any animals that have evolved a use for radioactivity? If so, what ways is it used? If not, why has this not happened?

Creatures have evolved that can use electric energy to search for food
or stun their prey
. Animals have evolved the ability to use chemical energy
to light up their tails or attract food. Animals are well practiced in symbiotic relationships with chemicals, bacteria and each other, but what about radioactive elements?
