Description

Gorillas share 98% of our DNA. They are practically family... We visited the mountain gorillas of the Virunga Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda, and what a sight it was. To be only a few feet away from them in their natural habitat, each group we saw, 13 and Hirwa, went on their business as usual. Then, Mommy and Daddy in "Hirwa" group decided to make a baby in front of us. Priceless!!! The Silverbacks (group leaders), as the mature males are called, can reach 400+ pounds and can live to be 50 years old. Mountain gorillas subside mostly on stems, leaves and bamboo. Fortunately, poaching in Rwanda has been stopped a few years ago. Size of family groups can range from 5-46.
