The mountain gorilla is one of three recognized geographically distinct gorillas, the largest, rarest, and most powerful anthropoid ape. Gorillas inhabit the forests of equatorial Africa from the western lowlands near the Cameroon coast to an altitude of about 3000 m (about 10,000 ft) in the central highlands of Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda. Three geographically distinct types are recognized: the western lowland gorilla, the eastern lowland gorilla, and the more densely coated mountain gorilla.
Fights between gorillas are rare and are usually resolved through threatening gestures.
Gorillas build a new sleeping nest every night.
Gorilla young develop physical skills twice as fast as human babies.
