Gorilla

gorilla-1

The fact that gorilla faces are so similar to human ones makes it possible to see real personality in their facial expressions. They also make it obvious when they don’t want their photos taken. Some days you walk up, they take one look at you and turn their backs, other days they are happy to stop and pose.

The western lowland gorilla is found inhabiting the tropical jungles and forests of western and central Africa, along with lowland swamps and secondary forests. The biggest threat to the western lowland gorilla is habitat loss caused by deforestation and also being hunted by humans. Parts of the western lowland gorilla’s territory have also been taken over by civil unrest in recent years, which, along with poaching, has had a truly devastating affect on wild populations.
