What is the physical strength of a Mountain Gorilla?
Mountain gorillas live in the misty mountain forests of the Virunga Massif and the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in central Africa. They have longer, thicker fur than other gorilla subspecies, allowing them to live in colder temperatures. Adult males can weigh up to 200kg (31st 9lb), and are roughly twice the size of adult females.
When they reach maturity (at around 12 or 13 years old), males develop the characteristic silver fur on their back that gives them the name ‘silverback’.

Gorillas are the largest subspecies of gorilla, and adult males can reach up to 250kg (39st, 5lb), making them the world’s largest primate. They are similar to mountain gorillas but can be distinguished by their shorter fur, narrower faces and rounder nostrils.
Grauer’s gorillas, in common with other subspecies of gorilla, are largely herbivorous but have been observed eating ants and other insects. They live in family groups led by the dominant male silverback, and during the day spend their time feeding and resting. Gorillas build new nests to sleep in every night.

The mountain Gorillas are largely herbivorous, they predominantly consume vegetarian kind of food and eat a variety of vegetables from shoots, barks, seeds, foliage, fruits, buds to their favorite leaves – wild celery. Despite being vegetarian they are also selective on what vegetable they eat.
Occasionally, gorillas also eat soil and ash in a little amount that possibly helps in regulating their digestive system.
