Western Lowland Gorillas are herbivores. As such, their diet consists mostly of fruits, roots, shoots, and tree bark. Occasionally they eat insects, though this is usually a byproduct of eating the plants.

"Current knowledge on the social organization and behavior of gorillas is dominated by results from research on mountain gorillas though there are some data for eastern and western lowland gorillas. The minimum group size for all subspecies is two individuals (usually a silverback and a female), except for males ranging alone, while maximum group size varies slightly for each subspecies (Yamagiwa et al. 2003). The maximum group size for mountain gorillas can exceed 20 individuals, while eastern and western lowland gorillas generally are not found in groups larger than 17 to 20 individuals and western lowland gorilla groups are always observed in groups smaller than 20 individuals (Yamagiwa et al. 2003)."

Gorillas are NOT extinct - yet - although several species are threatened with extinction right now due to loss of habitat/human encroachment and poaching. Current identified species and sub-species of gorillas are:Western Gorilla(Gorilla gorilla) Western lowland gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla)Cross river gorilla (Gorilla gorilla diehli)Eastern Gorilla(Gorilla beringei) Mountain gorilla(Gorilla beringei beringei)Eastern lowland gorilla (Gorilla beringei graueri)The range of the two species is separated by the Congo river and its tributaries. The western gorilla lives west central Africa while the eastern gorilla lives in east central Africa. As logging operations cut new roads into the remote areas inhabited by the gorillas, they destroy habitat and make access to the gorillas easier for poachers. The least threatened is the Western lowland gorilla - which is still classified as "vulnerable". The Eastern lowland gorilla is classified as "endangered" with around 4,000 such gorillas currently living in the wilds. The Mountain gorilla is critically endangered with less than 800 left. The Cross river gorilla is even more critically endangered, with less than 300 left.

tropical rain forest Wild Gorillas live in Africa, and there are three varieties: the mountain gorilla, Eastern Lowland gorilla, and Western Lowland gorilla. A group of gorillas is called a troop. The troop is lead by a large male called a silver back.
