    http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showth...9180843&page=1

    =============================================

    1. Wild male gorillas weigh 135 to 180 kg (300 to 400 lb) while adult females usually weigh half as much as adult males at 68–113 kg (150–250 lb). Adult males are 1.7 to 1.8 m (5.6 to 5.9 ft) tall, with an arm span that stretches from 2.3 to 2.6 m (7.5 to 8.5 ft). Female gorillas are shorter with smaller arm spans.




    2. It is important to keep gorillas active when they are in captivity or they will end up suffering from various health problems including obesity. Obese gorillas in captivity can weigh as much as 270 kg (600 lb).




    3. A gorilla's lifespan is between 35 and 40 years, although zoo gorillas may live for 50 years and more.


    4. There are four types of gorillas: Western Lowland, Eastern Lowland and Mountain gorillas and the Cross River gorillas. The names refer to the different areas of Africa where they live. The mountain gorilla inhabits the cloud forests of the Virunga Volcanoes, ranging in altitude from 2,200–4,300 meters (7,200–14,100 ft), while the Lowland gorillas live in dense forests and lowland swamps and marshes as low as sea level




    5. The eastern gorilla is darker than the western gorilla - with the mountain gorilla (Eastern) being the darkest of all. The mountain gorilla also has the thickest hair. Gorillas that live in lowland forests are more slender and agile than the more bulky mountain gorillas. The eastern gorilla also has a longer face and broader chest than the western gorilla.


    * Eastern gorilla


    6. A “silverback” is not a species. It is an adult male gorilla usually over 12 years of age that has matured and grown distinctive patch of silver hair on his back. Younger sexually mature gorillas of up to 11 years of age are called “blackbacks” (they haven’t produced a silver patch of hair yet).


    * A silverback (left) and a blackback (right) are fighting. The blackback doesn’t stand a chance.


    7. A group of gorillas that live together are called a troop, and is built of 5-30 gorillas. Troops are usually composed of one Silverback gorilla (whom is the leader), several adult females and their offspring, although here have been troops with more than one silverback.




    8. The silverback is the center of the troop's attention, making all the decisions, mediating conflicts, determining the movements of the group, leading the others to feeding sites and taking responsibility for the safety and well-being of the troop. He has exclusive breeding rights to the females. At times he may allow other sub-adult males in the group to mate with females. The silverback mediates disputes and also determines the group’s home range. He regulates what time they wake up, eat and go to sleep. Younger males subordinate to the silverback, known as blackbacks, may serve as backup protection.




    9. Gorillas sometimes leave their groups (troop) and join another. Females do this more often than the males. Bachelor gorilla males will try to form their own troop when finding emigrating females.

    10. If the silverback dies but there is no dominant male to take its place, the troop will split up and look for another protective male, or join an existing troop. Bachelor silverbacks will usually try and form a new troop of their own with them.




    11. A male gorilla will fight an older gorilla to take its place as the leader and dominant male. If challenged by a younger or even by an outsider male, a silverback will scream, beat his chest, break branches, bare his teeth, then charge forward, and if the male doesn’t back off they will fight.




    12. Very often the new male gorilla will kill all the young infants of the former leader to make sure all the new infants will be his. This also causes the females to begin cycling sooner.




    13. Gorilla males are ready to mate when they are approximately 13 years of age. For females it is about 10 years of age (earlier in captivity). The gestation lasts 8.5 months, wait 4 years between giving birth again and will have around 3-4 babies in their lifetimes. In the rare cases another has 2 babies, she will let the weaker infant die.




    14. After birth, when the mother is looking for food the baby will hang on to her in the front. When it is about 6 months old it will ride on the back. They can’t walk on their own until about 5 months of age. She will continue to carry the baby for about the first 1 ½ years of life. They stay near their mothers until they are 5 years of age.




    15. Gorillas have a high infant mortality rate; only about half of them will survive to adulthood.


    16. Males will slowly begin to leave their original troop when they are about 11 years old, travelling alone or with a group of other males for 2–5 years before being able to attract females to form a new group and start breeding (either by taking over an existing troop or attracting emigrating females that have left their former group to form a new one).


    * A bachelor group of males


    17. Silverbacks also have large canine teeth which come with maturity.




    18. A male mountain gorilla sometimes stays in his original troop and becomes subordinate to the dominant silverback. If the silverback dies, he may become the dominant male and mate with the females.

    19. Female gorillas will leave her troop at the age of 10 to find another (if the male lets her in). All of this is part of nature’s way of preventing inbreeding from taking place within the troops. When a female is ready to mate she will give off an odor that the males will pick up on.




    20. Male gorillas are not active in caring for the young, but they do play a role in socializing them to other youngsters. The silverback has a largely supportive relationship with the infants in his troop and shields them from aggression within the group.




    21. Females within a group that are maternally (family) related tend to be friendly to each other, otherwise they act aggressively towards each other and have few friendly encounters.




    22. Females form strong relationships with males to gain mating opportunities and protection from predators and dangerous outside males. Bonds between them are maintained by grooming and staying close together. Males have weak social bonds, especially in groups with apparent dominance hierarchies and mate (female) competitions. All male groups, however, tend to have friendly interactions and socialize through play, grooming and staying together and occasionally they even engage in homosexual interactions.




    23. The grooming process is one that is very calming for gorillas, and they can go into a trance like state during it for hours and hours.




    24. Gorillas sleep about 13 hours each night and rest for several hours at midday.




    25. Gorillas are primarily herbivorous, eating the leaves and stems of herbs, shrubs, and vines. They also will eat rotten wood and small animals such as insects and termites. Many people assume that with the sharp teeth of gorillas they also consume meat but that isn’t true.




    26. Adult male gorillas eat about 45 pounds (20 kg) of food per day. Females eat about two-thirds of that amount. They have very large stomachs and a very fast digestive system.

    27. Gorillas are careful not to deplete an area of food entirely. This is one of the reasons why the troop will spread out when they feed instead of all doing so in one centralized area.




    28. Gorillas use tree branches and leaves to build their nests. They make nests when they nap in the afternoon and before they sleep for the night. They will never sleep in the same nest twice.




    29. Unlike chimpanzees or orangutans, gorillas tend to sleep in nests on the ground. Infants sleep with their mothers, and at the age of 3 start building their own.




    30. Gorillas rarely drink water itself due to the amount of moisture found in their dietary items, along with morning dew.




    31. The DNA of gorillas is very similar to humans – about 98% the same. This is more than any other animal in the world, except the chimpanzee.






    32. When excited, or to intimidate an enemy, a male gorilla pounds his chest. He stands on his legs and slaps his cupped hands against his chest.




    33. Gorillas aren’t meat eaters, it is a common myth.

    34. They walk with their weight on the knuckles, although they sometimes walk on 2 legs for short distances while carrying food or in defensive situations






    35. Just about every single gorilla in the world has the same blood type – Type B.


    36. Every gorilla has a unique fingerprint just like humans.




    37. Gorillas communicate with each other by using gestures, body postures, facial expressions, vocal sounds, chestslaps, drumming and odors. Although they cannot make the sounds of human speech, gorillas are capable of understanding spoken languages and they can learn to communicate in sign language.




    38. Gorillas are very intelligent, and they share with us a full range of emotions: love, hate, fear, grief, joy, greed, generosity, pride, shame, empathy, and jealousy. They laugh when they are tickled and cry when they are sad or hurt. Gorillas cry with sounds, not tears.




    39. Gorillas are able to use tools in the wild. A gorilla can use a stick to gauge the depth of water whilst crossing a swamp, or use a tree stump as a bridge and also as a support whilst fishing in the swamp. They may also use rocks to break open nut shells.




    40. In spite of their very large size, for the most part gorillas are very calm animals.




    41. They are able to see in color. All of their senses are very highly developed.

    42. They are able to grasp items with both their hands and their feet.




    43. The African Wildlife Foundation says that the Mountain Gorilla is 10 times stronger than the largest American Football Player and can crush a man with his arms. A Gorilla can lift two tons over his head because of his extreme upper arm strength. Some say far more than 2 tons (4800 lbs).

    their physiology allows them to digest and utilize proteins in plants. The male gorilla eats 45lbs of food a day, so even if it's minimal protein that's a **** ton of food.


    2 tons lifted over head??? WTF is that real life, I want to see this on video! would be awesome.

    I think it has something to do with the fact they can incorporate their full potential for strength very easily, where as humans cannot activate their full potential for strength unless under certain variable conditions.

    however gorillas lack fine motor skills like us humans have... they can flip a car over with ease but could not thread a needle.

    correct, plants feed them everything, although 3% of their diet is termites and such, but a small quantity that wouldn.t make in impact.

    and as for the lifting weights, it is a very controversial subject ebated upon scientists. some say gorillas are only strong as 2 healthy men, where as there are some who claim they are 20 times as strong. i spent the longest time on this particular information trying to find pictures or vidoes, but found none, only written evidence of tess being done on animals. one test showed a chimpanzee being twice as strong as ahuman (per weigh), and another being 8 times as strong. either way, i would like to agree with it being 10 times as strong, seems realisic. and 2 tons is assuming the gorilla is maxed out at 200KG (biggest ever was is 250KG i think), and tasking into consideration that gorillas can lift 10 times their body weight.

    me too, but this is assuming it is it is on he larger end of scale weight wise, and that it tries to lift an object that weigh. i believe they can atleast hold a ton over their head, that is realistic imo

    It does seem a little crazy that they can do this. I know one of the SilverBack males in San Diego zoo is like 280lbs, and he can't stand over 5'0". The muscle fiber density, plus the mechanical advantage of his muscles due to insertion points and bone density would make him ridiculously strong. I mean, he was like 10% bodyfat, and built like a tank.

    My father-in-law also recollects a time that he was a male, in a small zoo, reach up to a 6" oak branch and break it off of the tree with one hand. He said it was one of the most impressive things he has seen. He said the gorilla did it almost effortlessly.
