The “Gorilla”, name to one of the tribes in Uganda. For all that have managed to see the Gorillas can surely testify why I call them people. They honestly act like people and are so gentle. The Gorillas feed during day and rest during the night. The Gorillas lay soft tree branches and lay them down to easily have a comfortable rest which all people do, this is fantastic and when it comes to reproduction you’ll get amused. The female gorillas give birth to an infant after a pregnancy of nearly nine months which people exactly do. The young gorillas immediately remind you of the babies home due to their behaviors, spend much of their time during day playing, climbing trees, swinging from branch to branch, and chasing one another.
All wouldn’t be nice before I talk of the “SILVER BACK”, he is always the leader of each family despite of the silver coloring on the back that helps you identify that it’s the silver back but you can easily identify him by his movements. He makes sure he moves last and makes sure no intruder is following the family to cause danger in the family.
A gorilla while standing on two legs has an average height of 6 feet almost equal to human height while on four legs it has an average height of 5 feet 6 inches. The Gorilla’s lifespan ranges between 35 to 40 years. They live on the green and they are found in Uganda, Rwanda and The Democratic Republic of Congo.
