Gorillas behave very similarly to humans; in fact, the DNA of these primates is 98% the same as that of man, which is very surprising in these animals. They also have unique fingerprints like those of humans.
However, gorillas have been considered brilliant animals. Even many primates in captivity have been able to learn sign language to communicate, as was the case with Koko gorilla, who learned to communicate through this language.

However, when gorillas or their families feel threatened or in danger, these primates can become very aggressive to defend themselves. Likewise, gorillas are usually friendly and interact with other subspecies and species most of the time.
Gorillas are herbivorous animals, which means that their diet is mainly based on vegetables. Although they are large in appearance and proportion, they only feed on leaves, stems, herbs, roots, fruits, fungi, and shoots.
Also, gorillas have a large and strong jaw, which is their jawbone, allowing them to consume and crush the hard stems they eat.
Gorillas live in groups of 2 to 30 individuals, and in each group, there is a mature male or better known as a silverback who will lead them.
On the other hand, the habitat where gorillas are found will depend on whether they are western or eastern gorillas, as well as on the subspecies they belong to.
However, gorillas use not one but two beds where they sleep. These beds are made of leaves and dry grass to sleep in at night, while during the day they build a smaller foundation to rest after they have eaten or to shelter from the rain.
The next day the gorillas leave their beds to go somewhere else, as this way, they can keep themselves healthy and clean and avoid parasites while moving around.
