This is exciting as it gets because the today’s topic is a muscle head creature. Well muscle + head get it ? Lets get it on with the creature that Mr. Charles Darwin refer to the human kind that evolved with – the GORILLA

THE GORILLA

The Gorilla has two types: the mountain gorillas and the lowland gorillas. Mountain Gorilla lives in mountain areas in Rwanda, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, etc. while the lowland Gorilla lives in forests of central and western Africa in Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Congo, Gabon and the Democratic Republic of the Congo, etc.

The two groups look exactly the same but looks may be deceiving because they actually do differ. For example, mountain gorillas tend to have longer hair, whereas lowland gorillas have short, soft hair.

The Gorillas are commonly herbivores which eats plants such as wild celery, shoots, roots, fruit, tree bark and in some cases they eat insects.

The Gorillas like to socialize and they usually live in groups which is called a troop or a bands which has a maximum of 50 members. The troops will have a leader which will be the most dominant among them. The dominant leader is also a silverback.

The Gorillas trait that is close to the human kind (except the appearance) is their intelligence. They are capable of using tools which indeed like us who are very dependent on using the tools that we made.
