"That'll be a bat and lagerGuinea has banned the sale and consumption of bats to prevent the spread of the deadly Ebola virus, its health minister has said.
Bats, a local delicacy, appeared to be the "main agents" for the Ebola outbreak in the south, Rene Lamah said.
Sixty-two people have now been killed by the virus in Guinea, with suspected cases reported in neighbouring Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Ebola is spread by close contact. There is no known cure or vaccine.
It kills between 25% and 90% of victims, depending on the strain of the virus, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
Symptoms include internal and external bleeding, diarrhoea and vomiting.
People who eat the animals often boil them into a sort of spicy pepper soup, our correspondent says. The soup is sold in village stores where people gather to drink alcohol.
