Gorillas, The Earth's largest primates, inhabit African rainforests. Divided into two species (Eastern and Western), gorillas are highly intelligent and social. Troops, led by a dominant silverback male, comprise related females and their offspring. They communicate through vocalisations, body language, and facial expressions. Despite their imposing size, gorillas are generally peaceful herbivores, consuming leaves, fruits, and plants. Regrettably, all gorilla species are endangered due to habitat loss, poaching, and disease. Conservation efforts are vital to protect these magnificent creatures and the rich biodiversity of their habitats. Understanding gorillas also offers insights into human evolution, emphasising their importance in our natural world.
