A silverback gorilla is not a species of gorilla, but rather a name used to describe the male of the species whose fur appears silver in colour. since 2011, Gorillas have been divided into two species and four sub-species: The species 'Eastern Gorilla' (Gorilla Beringer), with the subspecies 'Eastern Lowland Gorilla' (Gorilla Beringer Graveri) and 'Mountain Gorilla' (Gorilla Beringer Beringel). And the species 'Western Gorilla' (Gorilla Gorilla), with the sub-species 'Western Lowland Gorilla' (Gorilla Gorilla Gorilla) and the 'Cross River Gorilla' (Gorilla Gorilla Diehli).

There are four recognized subspecies:Western Lowlands Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla gorilla)Cross River Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla diehli)Mountain Gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei)Eastern Lowland Gorilla (Gorilla beringei graueri)The Bwindi Gorilla has been suggested as a third subspecies of Easter Gorilla. However, it has not yet been assigned a trinomen.

No , but mountain Gorilla is the largest species .

There are two species of gorilla (each with two sub-species). They are primates (they have forward facing eyes and grasping hands). Until fairly recently, gorillas would have been classified as great apes, but it was realised that at least one "great ape" was more closely related to humans than to other great apes so this has led to a reclassification and the gorilla species (as well as the two chimpanzee species) are now classified as hominid.

Until recently there was considered to be a single gorilla species, with three subspecies: the Western Lowland Gorilla, the Eastern Lowland Gorilla and the Mountain Gorilla.There is now agreement that there are two species with two subspecies each. More recently it has been claimed that a third subspecies exists in one of the species. The separate species and subspecies developed from a single type of gorilla during the Ice Age, when their forest habitats shrank and became isolated from each other source:wikipedia

monkeys are monkeys. gorillas are gorillas. they are two separate species of primates

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.

The largest living apes are the gorillas. There are two species. The largest is the eastern gorilla.
