Lowland gorilla. Adult male gorilla (Gorilla gorilla) with a two-year-old juvenile. This gorilla inhabits the tropical rainforests of Africa. It lives in a group of 2-30 individuals, dominated by a large male. It is a quiet, peaceful animal until provoked, when the dominant male intimidates the aggressor by beating its hands on its chest and roaring. It lives mostly on the ground, though the young often play in trees. It is most active in the morning and is a herbivore, eating leaves, fruit and tree bark.
