The volcanos of the gorillas

The territory of the gorillas contains three islands and two volcanos, which gives them a total play area of more than 5.000m2, of which 3.400m2 is outdoors with lots of climbing possibilities. The indoor area of 1.600m2, in the middle of the volcanos, bathes in natural sunlight.

 

The western lowland gorilla  

About 20 years ago, roughly 100.000 gorillas were present in central Africa (Cameroon, Congo-Brazzaville, central-African Republic,...), their natural environment. Nowadays they have been classified as critically endangered, due to deforestation, illegal hunting and diseases such as Ebola.

Despite of their impressive shape they are peaceful and kind-hearted animals.

A lowland gorilla is mainly herbivore. His diet is made of carrots, herbs, leaves and bark and seasonal fruit. Sometimes they eat insects but never meat.

They sleep in nests, made of branches, that they roughly build on the ground or in trees. 

Thes gorillas are very social animals, they live in families, with up to 15 apes. Gorillas are the strongest animals of their specie, a gorilla's strength equals to that of six human men.
