Time passed quickly, and one day Ace suddenly received an invitation. The fetish of the Vachati tribe in Africa – a big white bat is missing. They want Ace to come back and help them find the white bat. As soon as he set foot on the African continent, Ace immediately started investigation work. First of all, Ace pinned the object of suspicion on the director of the wildlife park, but couldn’t find any evidence, so he had to give up. Then he suspected that the tribal wizard stole it, but he also had no clue. During the investigation full of jokes, Ace discovered that the white bat was originally in the hands of two poachers, and the leader behind it was actually the ambassador. It turned out that in order to monopolize the rare resource of bat guano, he did not hesitate to stir up conflicts among the tribes in order to profit from it. In the end, Ace returned the white bat to Zhao with the help of the animals.
