The Mighty Gorilla
Mighty gorillas live in forests in tropical Africa, including Rwanda. Few animals have sparked the imagination of man as much as the gorilla who are the last members of the biggest living apes. They are endangered and we need less people hunting gorillas and more people protecting their habitats.

What do Gorillas look like?
Gorillas look a little bit like monkey’s, they have fingers as their feet, but in a weird shape.  All gorillas are hairy. They have hair on their head, arms, legs, cheeks and stomach. The rest of their body is hard, shiny black skin. They have a huge head and big nostrils. Their nose print is the same as a human's fingerprint. No two are the same.
Not all gorillas look the same. Some have a silver-back and are always male. The gorillas that have a silver-back are the leader’s.
Gorillas behaviour
Gorillas live in groups called troops that are made up of 1 to 4 adult males, the boss are called the silver-back. Some of the childish males are called black backs. Many females and their babies make up the rest of the troop. They spend the day looking for food, playing or grooming each other. At night they make a nest using leaves to sleep in. s
Silver-back gorillas are the kings of the forest, so if someone threatens one of their family, then you're threatening one of the king's troop, it would get so angry and try to kill you. I’m warning you gorillas in Africa are dangerous but most of the time they are harmless .

What they eat
Gorillas love to eat. They need to eat lots of food otherwise they will die and be extinct. Gorillas are vegetarians so they only eat healthy food. They mostly eat wild celery, bamboo, thistles, stinging nettles and variety of plants.

Where they live

Gorillas live in lots of different places. If you want to find some gorillas, the places you should find most gorillas places like dense forests and woodlands in Africa. Some are up 10,000 feet up in the mountain, a cloudy, misty place that is cold. Where they are is influenced by food available to eat. Gorillas are also rulers of the forest.

I think that gorillas deserve more than to be hunted by our own kind. We need to protect these intelligent animals and make sure that they survive for future generations.
