What Do Gorillas Eat?
Gorillas are herbivorous apes that inhabit the forests of central Africa. They are the largest primates.
Gorillas have many ways in which they communicate, both verbally and non verbally.
All of the gorillas remaining in the wild are at risk of extinction due to poaching and due to their natural habitat being destroyed.
The distribution of gorillas is mainly in Africa but you will find that they have a very diverse area where they live.
The earliest records of primates are more than 70 million years old and the gorillas were separated from the other hominids about 7 million years ago.
You will find the gorillas living in both tropic and sub tropic areas. They have an extreme range which really does surprise most people.
