Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla). This African ape is the largest of the primates, and may reach a height of over two metres. Adults spend the majority of their time on the ground, although young gorillas enjoy climbing trees. Gorillas live in groups of as many as 30 individuals, with a rigid social hierarchy led by a dominant male. They are mainly vegetarian, eating fruits and leaves.
