           Gorilla Facts:

  1.  There are two primary types of gorillas; eastern and western. The western lowland gorilla and the Cross River gorilla are found in the west. Other subspecies include the eastern lowland gorilla and the mountain gorilla. Eastern gorillas are darker than their western counterparts.

  2. Human and gorilla genes are extremely similar. Gorillas have a high IQ and can communicate their feelings through behaviors such as laughing and crying. They can use and fashion their own rudimentary tools.  Like humans, they even have fingerprints!

  3. Because of their long arms, gorillas are better able to walk on all fours,  using their fingers and knuckles.  They’re  capable of walking on two legs for about ten feet. Gorillas’ arm span is roughly one foot longer than that of an adult human male.

  4. Gorillas have incredible upper-body strength making them six times stronger than a human. They carry and propel their massive bodies with the help of their arms, chests, and backs.  A male wild gorilla is between 300 and 500 pounds, a female is 150 to 250 lbs.

  5. Two adults constitute a gorilla family, but groups of up to 50 individuals have been documented. Larger gorilla groups are called bands or troops. Older males, known as silverbacks, are the dominant figures in bands. These guardians choose when they  stop for meals, breaks, and moves.

  6. Silverback's aggressive nature is only revealed if they feel threatened, shown by beating their chests. Otherwise, even these dominant figures are generally peaceful primates.

  7. Female gorillas gestate for 8.5 months. A mother normally has one live infant, like other primates and humans. Twins rarely occur. Most newborns weigh 4 pounds. A mature female will have one baby every few years and three to four total in her lifetime.

  8. Gorillas are forest-dwelling, ground-dwelling creatures, thriving in humid lowland tropical rainforests or frigid highland woods.  Eastern or  Mountain gorillas live in the DRC, Rwanda, and Uganda’s Virunga Mountains or Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.  Their habitat reaches 13,000 feet above sea level.  

  9.  The western gorilla habitat is about half that high. Most gorillas are western lowland gorillas. Cameroon, Nigeria, Central African Republic, Republic of Congo, DRC, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, and Angola are their home.

  10. Gorillas are herbivores, eating wild celery, bamboo, roots, and fruits. Gorillas eat bark, branches, and tree pulp. They ingest soil and ash to promote digestion. They also consume small animals and insects; but they’re not hunters.  An adult male gorilla can eat 40 pounds of vegetation daily, or 10% of its body weight. That’s 80 broccoli heads.

  11. Gorillas rarely need fresh water to hydrate. Their meal and early dew provide enough hydration.

  12. Africa‘s gorilla population is declining.  Logging, mining, and agriculture are destroying gorilla habitats, leading to increased human conflict.  There is also poaching  for “bush meat” in war-torn areas. In the last 20 to 25 years, the western lowland gorilla population has halved. Even if all dangers to gorillas were removed immediately, it would take over 75 years to reestablish their number.

  13.  Only about 5,000 Eastern Lowland gorillas remain in the wild, down from 17,000 in the mid-1990s. Since then, the gorilla’s habitat has fallen from 8,000+ to 5,000 square miles;  now occupying 13% of their historical range. Civil turmoil in the DRC has led to widespread poaching. Human encroachment is driving mountain gorillas uphill to colder elevations, where they may not survive temperatures.

All gorillas play a key role in their ecosystems. They also play an important role in the food chain, helping to spread seeds and preserve the area’s flora. Losing these gentle giants would upset the ecology depriving us of one of our largest, strongest, and most stunning primates. Gorillas have a chance at survival because so many people take interest  in them.
