Mountain gorillas live in very close-knit communities with up to 30 members in each group. They can climb trees, but prefer to stay on the ground, as they are big and heavy and break all the branches! In each group they have one dominant male leader, though other males may challenge him during his reign. Overall though gorillas are relaxed and laid back creatures. They would only get involved in a conflict situation if they felt their family was being threatened. If they did feel that, you’d better stay out of their way!

- Mountain gorillas very rarely drink water, as the plants they eat provide more than enough moisture to keep them hydrated.
- If you ever encounter a gorilla in the wild (which is unlikely!) be sure to stay still and don’t stare at it. Gorillas very rarely attack humans, but if you follow our advice, you should be fine!
- Gorilla’s are highly intelligent creatures, and some that have been kept in captivity have even been taught human sign language.
Our mountain gorilla says…
Hi there, I’m a mountain gorilla, and I’m one of the biggest mammals in the jungle. I love to hang out with my friends and family, but due to poaching and the destruction of my habitat I am now an endangered species. In fact, sadly there’s less than 900 of us left on the planet where once there were many. Please adopt me and help provide funds to train rangers to protect us from poachers, as if any more of us are killed we will disappear from the planet all together. Please help us.
