The Ivory Coast may not have much big game like other parts of Africa, but yet it happens that I’m in awe of the animal life just in Abidjan.
I’ve seen a few times when the sky over Abidjan is full of bats – thousands of them. No idea why, but it’s an impressive sight. Unfortunately, it’s very hard to capture on camera. Here are the attempts I made last time:
A Feature, not a Bug
In the Cocody house it seems a family of Geckos have made their home. It’s not that you occasionally see geckos on the walls, it’s always at least one gecko on one of the house’s walls every time I’ve been there. Geckos are I believe pretty harmless and quite fascinating, so I’m going to put it down as a feature and not a bug. And they are much easier to photograph than bats:
And then we have insects, which can be much larger than what I’m used to back in Sweden. The dragonfly (trollslända) below is zoomed in all right, but not that zoomed in.
