    Bats are also linked to several new diseases with the potential for worldwide impact.

    Ebola was traced to the Hammer-headed Bat, the Peter’s Dwarf Epauletted Fruit Bat, and the Egyptian Rousette Fruit Bat. According to a New York Times article, Link to African Ebola Found in Bats Suggests Virus Is More Widespread, it is now theorized bats drink out of jars attached to trees to collect tasty palm sap, and that humans consume fresh sap contaminated with bat saliva, urine or feces.

    Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) was traced to Chinese Horseshoe bats.

    Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) may be linked to the range matching that of the Desert Long-eared Bat.

        I simply thought you would want to know about a potential threat to your health. If you prefer to make fun of it, that is your stupidity. Evidently the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization don’t think its that funny, or refer to the problem in such a sarcastic manner as you. Maybe you won’t find it so funny when your sitting next to someone on a plane who has one of these illnesses. That is how SARS spread worldwide in a matter of months back in 2002.
