ok .. let us assume that demons appear at equal probabilty per area unit all over the world
demons appearing over the sea would moistly vanish,m as aninlas developed enough to carry a demon are rare out there (textev: the way sorceres are killed by roknari)
but over land - even wild land - there are a lot more animals who could carry a demon .. and without someone / something culling them, would doon accumulate among the higher ainmals .. do we see such a accumulation? i do not think so ..
but we also do not see a culling process (apart from demons dieing "naturally" if they cannot find another host creature, but that should not be too hard in that situation
the only active culling process we actually do see is among humans
but despite the active culling we still see a high number of demons near human populations - which leads me to the assumption that new demons become more probable when the human poipulatrion density increases

I wonder if there's some sort of sensor checks that spits out the new demons far from human settlements, so that they get a chance to work through a few animals before they get to a human?

Demons might anything with a large enough brain or, conversely, the demon can only jump up a certain distance in complesity and not be able to remember anything smaller than a bird. We know there are problems with jumping down, Swat a mosquito and get a demon?
