Germany. North Rhine-Westphalia state. Cologne Zoological Garden. Being the third oldest zoo in Germany, it features over 10,000 animals of more than 850 species on more than 20 hectares. A group of visitors look at two gorillas through a glass wall. Gorillas are herbivorous, predominantly ground-dwelling great apes that inhabit the tropical forests of equatorial Africa. The DNA of gorillas is highly similar to that of humans, from 95 to 99% depending on what is included. Gorillas are the largest living primates, reaching heights between 1.25 and 1.8 metres, weights between 100 and 270 kg, and arm spans up to 2.6 metres, depending on species and sex. They tend to live in troops, with the leader being called a silverback. 24.01.24 © 2024 Didier Ruef
