GORILLAS UGANDA $ RWANDA

Gorillas are the largest primate in the world. They are of three subspecies: The western lowland gorilla inhabits the rain forests of Cameroon, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, the Republic of the Congo, the extreme southwestern Central African Republic, and extreme southeastern Nigeria. The eastern lowland gorilla inhabits the rain forests of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The mountain gorilla inhabits the Virunga Mountains on the border of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda.
Gorillas are primarily herbivorous, they eat leaves and stems of herbs, shrubs, and vines. In some areas, they raid farms, eating, trampling crops, rotten wood and small animals.
The western lowland gorillas also diet on fleshy fruits of close to a hundred seasonally fruiting tree species; the diets of other gorilla subspecies include proportionally less fruit. Most Gorillas get some protein added to their diet from invertebrates found on leaves and fruits. An adult male gorilla eats about 45 pounds (20 kg) of food per day and females eat about two-thirds of that amount.
