World's Largest Gorillas Near Extinction


The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) on 4 September 2016 listed the eastern gorilla, the largest living primate, as critically endangered in its latest red list of threatened species.
The largest living primate’s population is now estimated to be fewer than 5000. Grauer’s Gorilla, one subspecies of Eastern Gorilla, has lost 77% of its population since 1994, declining from 16900 individuals to just 3800 in 2015. 
•    The eastern gorilla is a large hominid with a large head, broad chest and long arms.
•    It has a flat nose with large nostrils.
•    The face, hands, feet and breast are bald.
•    The fur is mainly black, but adult males have a silvery saddle on their back.
•    Grauer's gorilla has a shorter, thicker, deep black fur, while the mountain gorilla has a more bluish color.
•    Eastern gorillas are herbivorous, with a heavily foliage based diet, due lack of available fruit in their habitats.
