Wild rodents are thought to be principal reservoir for these viruses, although many species act as incidental hosts and expose humans to infection. Human-to-human transmission of most animal poxviruses is rare. However, there had been confirmed cases of human-to-human transmission for monkey  pox virus while suspicions for human-to-human transmission of buffalo pox virus
