Gorilla Activities for Kids!

Gorillas are herbivores meaning they don’t eat meat.

Gorillas can eat up to 50 pounds of food each day.

They eat leaves, berries, plants, fruits, flowers, shrubs, vines and sometimes small insects.

Gorillas can live 35 years in the wild and over 50 years in captivity.

Adult male Gorillas (over the age of 12) are called silverbacks.  This is because the hair on  their backs start to turn from black to gray.

Gorilla’s live in groups of 6-12 called bands or troops.  They consist mostly of one silverback, a couple of females and their young.

A female Gorilla is pregnant between 8.5-9 months.  They give birth to 1 baby at a time.

A baby Gorilla starts to crawl around 2 months and walk by 9 months.  They stay with their mothers for 3-4 years.
