Forest bat

A forest bat netted in Uganda. The bat hosts a parasite — a large wingless, eyeless fly — that in turn seems to be host for a newfound virus. New work from the University of Wisconsin-Madison is helping unravel the ecological interplay of important pathogens and their hosts. After testing, the bat was released unharmed.
