Wallpaper Description
The most endangered of the great apes, these shy and peaceful animals live in Africa. In the wild, this powerful silverback would be the leader of his family group consisting of several females and young ones. Even though he may weigh 400 pounds and stand 5'6" tall, a silverback can be extremely gentle and tolerant and will raise orphaned and abandoned baby gorillas that are not his own. Gorillas are losing their homelands to humans at an alarming rate and are also targeted for the bushmeat trade. Their lives are further complicated as some of the areas they inhabit are experiencing ongoing fighting and civil unrest.
