Description:Photographed here, in the Rhodesian (now Zimbabwean) tree tops, is a Cercopithecus aethiops, also known as green, or vervet monkey.
This specie of monkey, which was also involved in the first 1967 outbreak in Marburg, Germany, and in Zagreb, Yugoslavia, was being investigated as a possible vector for the 1975 Marburg outbreak in Rhodesia. This image was captured near one of the camping sites used by hitchhikers in this area, who later developed symptoms of hemorrhagic fever, and were diagnosed with Marburg fever, thereafter, referred to as cases #1 and #2.
