The Western Lowland Gorilla [Gorilla gorilla gorilla] is the largest of the living primates.  Males can reach 6 feet in height and weigh 400 pounds - females can be up to 5 feet, weighing 200 pounds.  This species ranges in colour from black to brown-gray with a coat that turns gray with age. Adult males have a "saddle" of silvery-white hair on their back running down to their rump and thighs.  The average lifespan of the Gorilla in the wild is about 35 years.  In zoos, they can live up to 50 years.

The Western Lowland Gorilla's native habitat is the forests and lowland swamps of central Africa.

Gorillas live in family groups called "troops"  that consist of one dominant silverback male, several adult females and their adolescents and children.  There many be a few non-dominant males as well.  Mothers have one baby about every five years.

We Are All God's
Creatures

 

 

 

 

"If all the beasts 
were gone,
 men would die from 
a great loneliness 
of spirit, 
for whatever happens 
to the beasts 
also happens to the man.  
All things are connected.  Whatever befalls 
the Earth 
befalls the sons 
of the Earth."

~ Chief Seattle 
of the Suquamish Tribe,
 letter to 
President 
Franklin Pierce ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Life is as dear 
to a mute creature 
as it is to man.  
Just as one wants happiness 
and fears pain, 
just as one wants 
to live 
and not die, 
so do other creatures."

~ His Holiness 
The Dalai Lama ~

 

 

 

"If you have men 
who will exclude 
any of God's creatures 
from the shelter 
of compassion and pity, 
you will have men 
who will deal likewise 
with their fellow men."

~ St. Francis of Assisi ~

 

 

 

 

"The worst sin 
towards our fellow creatures 
is not to hate them,
 but to be indifferent to them.  that's the essence 
of inhumanity."

~ George Bernard 
Shaw ~

 

 

"A bird does not sing 
because it has an answer. 
 It sings because 
it has a song."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
