Gorillas live in the jungles of Africa. They are wild animals and live in a band or a troop. Their favourite food is bananas though they mostly eat berries, leafy plants and bamboo shoots.
Gorillas are big and hairy. They have large hands and feet. A gorilla is an ape. A male gorilla is very strong and fierce if angered, so don’t go and annoy a silverback. It might pick you up, carry you up a tall tree and throw you down.
