One population of mountain gorillas inhabits the Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda. The second population of mountain gorillas is found in a mountainous region referred to as the Virungas.
It’s a herbivore. Mountain gorillas eat over 100 different species of plants. They rarely need to drink since their diet is so rich in succulent herbs, from which they get their water.
The mountain gorilla has a robust build with long, muscular arms, a massive chest, and broad hands and feet. It is the hairiest race of gorillas.
Eight and a half months after mating, a female gives birth to one young. Young are old, and females can give birth every four years.
