The Mighty Gorilla

Opening Statement
Have you ever seen a Gorilla in the Zoo and wondered how it got there? Have you asked why we need to protect them in a Zoo? Gorillas in the wild are found in Africa in countries like  Uganda, Rwanda, and the Bwindi Forest. Unfortunately they are endangered and need to be protected.

What do Gorillas look like?   
Gorillas are covered in black hair and some can be brown. Gorillas have a big forehead, large nostrils and 32 sharp teeth!!  Their highest height is 1.8 meters tall. They can live for 50 years. Female gorillas carry their babies in their  stomach for two hundred , fifty nine days.

Their diet
Gorillas a vegetarian and  they  need to eat a lot of food . They eat variety of plants like wild celery,  bamboo, thistles,  stinging needles.  

Gorillas are the rulers of the forest.  They live in Africa, where some live in dense forests  and woodlands . They are influenced by food so they move around a lot.

The silverback is boss of the family or troop.  They tell them where to go and where to sleep or eat. At night time they nest in trees. The rest of the troop is made out of females and kids.  They spend their day playing and  grooming each other.  They are friendly , gentle, quiet and they make no trouble unless they are threatened.

Closing Statement

I think that all gorillas should be left alone in the wild. We need to protect their habitat and give them the space to be free.
