Artist's Description

Canon Rebel T3i.
Gorillas are the largest of all apes, western lowland gorillas (Gorilla gorilla gorilla) are the smallest of the three gorilla subspecies. The great apes also include the chimpanzee, bonobos and the orangutan. Male gorillas stand about 5½ feet tall and weigh around 300–450 pounds; females are only half the weight of males.
Western lowland gorillas are found in the tropical rainforests of West Africa, including southwest Nigeria, Cameroon, Rio Muni, Gabon and eastern Congo.
Gorillas’ coats are black, brown or gray, with adult males having “silverback” saddles reaching to the thighs.
Hands, faces, feet and chests are black and hairless. Their skulls are large with heavy brow ridges. Noses are the most distinguishing features on gorillas, as individualized as fingerprints. Eyes are small and reddish brown in color. Ears are small and set close to the head. Like humans, gorillas have 32 teeth.
Gorillas have long arms, short legs and carry the bulk of their weight on their legs. They have short, broad hands with opposable thumbs that are adapted for “knuckle walking.” Of all the great apes, the gorillas’ feet are closest to those of humans, as the big and second toes are less opposable and are set closer together.
