The Mighty Gorilla
Did you know that gorilla can learn sign language and are our closest relatives in the animal kingdom. They are endangered and need our protection.

What do Gorillas look like?
The Gorilla is enormous and they live to 35 or 40 years old. The max weight of a gorilla is 160 kgs. It has ten fingers and ten toes just like humans. Gorillas have a thick body and they can grow up to 6 feet tall that is 1.8cms. They have a shiny black back but the gorillas with a shiny silver hair on their back are called silver backs.

Gorillas diet
Gorillas are mostly vegetarian but some eat insects like ants and termites. Gorillas eat vegetables such as wild celery, bamboo shoot, stinging nettles and thistles   

Where they live?
They live in thick forests and woodlands in Africa. Some gorilla are even found on the side of misty mountains up over 10,000 feet.  They are called the rulers of the forest.
How do they behave?
They live in a family called a troop. The boss is the silverback and he tells them where to go and what to eat. In the troop there are a lot of females and babies. They sleep in nests and spend the day grooming and playing. They are usually gentle and calm unless they feel threatened.

I think we should look after the gorillas because they are our closest living relatives. They are kind, gentle and intelligent. We need to protect their homes and learn more about them.
