What do Gorillas look like?
The gorilla is huge, with a broad chest and shoulder, all covered in muscle. Their arms are longer than their stubby legs. All gorillas are covered in a black shiny coat. They have hands that are human like and can be used to pick up food and to give hugs.  The fully grown adult male mountain gorilla is twice as large as the female.
What do Gorillas eat ?Gorilla - Free images on Pixabay
Most gorillas are herbivores,which mean they mainly eat plants. The food gorillas eat is 67% fruit,  17% seeds, leaves and stems,and  3% is Termites and Caterpillars. The male Gorillas can eat up to 20 kgs of food a day that's like half a child's body weight!

Where is a Gorilla’s habitat ?File:DallasZooGorillaHabitat.JPG - Wikimedia Commons
Gorilla’s are found in Africa. Some gorillas live on green volcanic mountains up 10,000 feet where it  is cloudy and cold.  Others live in luscious forests where it is warmer.  All gorilla’s move around depending on how much food is in the area.
How do they behave ?
Gorillas usually live in a troops of 1-4 silverback male gorillas and several females and children. The oldest and strongest Silverback males gets picked to be the leader as they are the most dominant! They spend their days playing,eating and grooming each other.  At night they nest in trees,using leaves as a mattress to sleep on.Free photo Mammal Monkey Animal Gorilla Tiergarten N├╝rnberg - Max ...
Concluding paragraph.

I think Gorillas are amazing animals and we need to show care for them, after all they are our most close relatives. We are there kaitiaki (guardians) after all. We need to start saving these remarkable endangered animals. I hope you have enjoyed my report on gorillas.File:Gorilla Scratching Head (18047130741).jpg - Wikimedia Commons
