General Gorilla Information
Everyone seems to love Gorillas from adults, teens, toddlers, and babies. This is apparent with the amount of gorilla masks and gorilla costumes sold all over the world. These ape costumes are popular for parties, festivals, Halloween, practical jokes and many more fun situations.Gorillas live in the forests of Africa. Their diets consist of both plants and insects. Gorilla are considered primates and are split into two species. Their life span is from 30 to 50 years. Funny enough, gorilla came from a Greek word Gorillai, which translated to a "tribe of hairy women".All of the gorilla population walks on its knuckles. Males are generally 5ft 7in and 390lb with the females 4ft 7in and 220lb. Gorillas weight can fluctuate just as humans. Some captive zoo gorillas have weighed as much as 600lb. A mature females stay pregnant for about 8.5 months and wait around 3 years between offspring, which is how long their baby's need moms assistance.
