A gorilla is a ground dwelling omnivore animal and largely dwells in the forest. An example of such forest is the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda.
There are 3 classifications of Gorilla. That is the Western Lowland Gorilla, the Eastern Lowland and the Mountain Gorilla. All these gorillas are endangered due to poaching, habitat destruction and trade in bush meat. Gorillas move in groups led by the male gorilla, the Silverback. Silver back is about 12 years of age or more with silver hair on his back. Its responsible for the entire movement of the troop, decision making and safety.
The two homes of mountain gorillas are Bwindi National park and Mgahinga National Park in Uganda. In Rwanda, Gorilla Tracking is done in Parc de Volcans. The Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi largely feed on fruits, foliage and epiphytes. The Bwindi gorilla diet is almost the same as that of the Bwindi Chimpanzees.
