What do gorillas eat? Gorillas are herbivores and gorilla food consists of mainly plants. A gorilla diet contains vegetative materials like leaves & stems.
Western gorillas are smaller than the Eastern gorilla but not by much. They are very much the same in their physical appearance.
Gorilla males are ready to mate when they are approximately 13 years of age. For females it is about 10 years of age. Gorilla mating happens all year round.
The gorilla is the largest of all primates, and there is no mistaking them for any of the others such as chimpanzees and monkeys.
The mountain gorilla is one of the world's most endangered primates. Estimations indicate that there are only about 300 mature individuals left in the wild.
This subspecies, the biggest of all primates in the world, inhabits mountain tropical forests and lowland tropical forests.
