HABITAT: Western lowland gorillas live in lowlands and swamp forests of subtropical and tropical Africa in Cameroon, Central African Republic, Equatorial Guinea, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gabon, and Angola (Cabinda).
DIET: Gorillas are herbivores, eating various parts of plants including leaves, bark, vines, and stalks. They enjoy bamboo, thistles, and wild celery. Lowland gorillas also eat fruit.
PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS: Males are twice as large as females, often weighing over 350 pounds, and have longer canine teeth. On two feet they may stand up to six feet tall. Because their substantial weight is not well-supported by branches, gorillas travel on the ground rather than swinging from tree to tree.
They are greyish-brown color macaque with a long tail. The top of their head is golden brown.
A primate (i/ˈpraɪmeɪt/ PRY-mayt) is a mammal of the order Primates (i/praɪˈmeɪtiːz/ pry-MAY-teez; Latin: "prime, first rank"), which contains prosimians and simians. Primates arose from ancestors that lived in the trees of tropical forests; many primate characteristics represent adaptations to life in this challenging three-dimensional environment. Most primate species remain at least partly arboreal.
