    Gorilla is the largest of the great apes. A male can weigh from 180 - 215 kg - almost three times as much as an average human male of the same height. standing upright, can measure up to six feet. Females are smaller, weighing about 90 Kg Unlike the chimpanzee, whose facial skin normally turns black only at maturity, skin is black from a few days after birth.Mature males have conspicuous light grey hair on the back, and are consequently often referred to as 'silverbacks'.They also have a bony crest on the top of the skull to which the jaw muscles are attached, giving a helmet-like appearance to the head and enormous power to the jaw. walk on all fours with knuckles to the ground, in a semi-erect position because their arms are longer than their legs. They can climb well, and spend much of their time foraging in the tree tops. western lowland gorilla populations are found in the lowland forests of Gabon, Republic of Congo, Cameroon and Central African Republic with smaller populations in Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea.
