A baby gorilla can cling to the fur on his mom’s back for a ride, leaving the mother’s hands free for walking.
The Infamous Silverback
The adult male who leads the troop is known as the ‘silverback’ - as he has grey hair on his back. He is almost twice the size of an adult female, weighing anything from 130 to 230 kilograms.
No two gorilla noses are alike. The ‘nose-prints’ of gorillas are as distinctive as human fingerprints — no two are identical.
Gorillas are the largest of all primates—the group of animals that includes lemurs, monkeys, orangutans, chimpanzees, and humans.
