The Gorilla
Gorillas are are fascinating animals. They live in Western and Eastern Africa.They live on forest mountains that are 10,000 feet up from the ground. Up in the mountains it is cloudy, misty and pretty cold. The Gorillas think there are the rules of the forest.
Family
The male Gorilla is the leader in the family and is know as the “Silverback”. He is called the silverback because he has an area of white or silvery hair across the back. The silverback decides where to eat, sleep and play. He is the boss.
The female Gorilla has a thick body, large head, are a shiny black colour and very muscular. There are 6-8 female gorilla in a family.
And we must not forget the baby Gorilla.The baby Gorilla stays on the mother until they are 4 months .The baby Gorilla likes to play. They even act like their dad and try to climb trees. Often they will fall over.
The Gorilla can live up to 35-50 years old.
Gorillas live in groups. Groups of gorillas are called troops or bands. A band of gorillas can have up to 30-50  members. They learn to crawl at about 2 months years old;and start to walk when they are 9 months years old.
Diet
These Gorilla’s need a lot of food and that is how they stay so muscular. They eat all kinds of veggies and insects, that means they are herbivores.  They usually eat vegetation such as wild celery, fruit, tree bark and tree pulp, but they have been known to eat small animals and insects. About 67% of their diet is fruit, 17% is leaves, seeds and stems; 3% is termites and caterpillars. A male can eat up to 18 kg of vegetation each day.Image result for gorillas eating
Fun facts!!!
Gorillas are the world’s largest primates. They are closely related to humans, with 98% of their DNA identical to that of Homo sapiens (scientific name for humans).
Some gorillas have learned to use sign language to communicate with humans.
The males are often twice as big as the females. The males grow to around 5 feet tall and weigh around 400 pounds. The females grow to 4 feet tall and weigh around 200 pounds.
Gorillas have long arms, even longer than their legs!. They use their long arms to "knuckle-walk". This is where they use the knuckles on their hands to walk on all fours.
They are highly intelligent and have now been observed using tools in the wild. Just like we have fingerprint gorillas have a nose print, so if you get a paper with some ink on it and press it on the nose is makes a print.(Each gorilla have a different one).
Are Gorillas endangered?
YES!!! They are because Recently the Ebola Virus killed a number of them. Now, less than 1,000 western lowland gorillas are found in the wild,923 Eastern lowland.Mountain gorillas are the most severely endangered, with an estimated population of about 635 left in the wild and none in zoos
