Description

Gorilla – Gorilla gorilla

Gorillas are ground-dwelling, predominantly herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Sub-Saharan Africa. The DNA of gorillas is highly similar to that of humans, from 95–99% depending on what is counted, and they are the next closest living relatives to humans after the bonobo and common chimpanzees.
Gorillas move around by knuckle-walking, although they sometimes walk bipedally for short distances while carrying food or in defensive situations. Wild male gorillas weigh 135 to 195 kg while adult females usually weigh half as much as adult males at 70–115 kg. Mountain gorillas mostly eat foliage, such as leaves, stems and shoots, while fruit makes up a very small part of their diets. Eastern lowland gorillas will eat the same as well as insects, preferably ants.
