Caption: Western Lowland Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) mother with young on her back. Extended parental care is a characteristic of primates; they have relatively few offspring. Herbivores native to Western Africa, gorillas are the largest of the primates. They share 97-98% of their DNA sequences with humans. They are our next closest relative after the chimpanzee. Congo exhibit at the Bronx Zoo, New York.
