Caption: The Western Lowland Gorilla (G. gorilla gorilla) can weigh from 135 to 175 kg. Males are significantyl larger than females. They have a broad chest, muscular neck, and strong hands and feet. Short, thin, grey-black to brown-black hair covers the entire body except the face. A thick ridge of bone juts out above the eye and the nostrils are flared. Western Lowland Gorillas are found in the tropical forests of western Africa from Nigeria to the Congo River. These gorillas have been important in behavioral research because their intelligence and body structure are closer to that of humans than any other primate except for chimpanzees. This silverback was photographed at the Rio Grande Zoo in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
