Whales originated from aquatic artiodactyls
in the Eocene epoch of India.
Initial findings of the virus' virulence and potential for transmission between equids and artiodactyls
were alarming and provided the impetus for experimental studies, which showed that disease could be induced in members of an additional 8 mammalian taxa: dogs, cats, horses, mice, hamsters, pigs, goats, and marmosets (4-6).
