The Gorilla genus is made up
of 2 species. As of 2006, there has been debate over dividing
Gorilla's into four or five subspecies as well. The female Gorilla
is about half the size of males. All gorillas get around by
what is termed 'knuckle walking'. The average lifespan of a
Gorilla is about 40 years. These mammals are mainly vegetarians,
once in a while eating insects. Gorillas have
individual finger prints as well, just like humans.
This listing takes into account the debate over
classifying Gorillas with subspecies.
