Mountain Gorilla

In this section


Gorillas are generally herbivores, which means they get their energy from eating plants such as such as wild celery, shoots, roots, fruit, tree bark and tree pulp.

Gorillas rarely attack humans, but in an encounter a person should stay still and not stare or point at the gorilla.

Gorillas live in groups called troops or bands, and like  humans, female gorillas are pregnant for nine months.
