In those primate species where high levels of SIV infection have been found in the wild, namely sooty mangabeys and African green monkeys (the Cercopithecus aethiops super-species), it is primarily adults that are seropositive, leading to the hypothesis that SIV is normally transmitted through sexual activity.
