Gorilla plays with people- level 3, A12
Gorillas are members of the ape family. Apes are similar to monkeys but they don’t have any tails or their tails are very short.
Gorillas are the biggest of apes. They can become very heavy. They can weigh up to 225 kilograms. They are completely vegetarians. They live in family groups and they are peaceful animals.
Gorillas live in the rainforests in central Africa. They mostly live on the ground, but they can also climb. Every day they travel through the forest and search for leaves and other food.
Gorillas sleep in nests that they build on the ground. At the end of each day, each gorilla prepares its nest that is soft and made of leaves and branches. The young gorillas sleep with their mothers.
Gorillas are very clever animals. They use about 25 different sounds for communication. They can also use simple tools if necessary.
Gorillas like to play very much. When they live in the zoo, very often they have nothing to do and they might start playing with people as you can see in the video.
