Gorillas are the largest primates weighing up to 430 lbs (200 kgs). They have enormous heads, long arms and broad powerful chests. Although they look quite fierce they are actually gentle, shy, vegetarians. They eat leaves, fruit, seeds, tree bark, plant bulbs, tender plant shoots, flowers and sometimes ants and termites.
