A large colony of fruit bats takes flight out of the trees where they live in the village of Attienkru, outside Bouake, Ivory Coast. Three species of fruit bats have historically been suspected of being the reservoir host of the Ebola virus. Bat hunting and consumption as food is common in many areas of West and Central Africa where bat populations are large.
