Males can weigh up to 500 pounds. They are a close relative of the better known mountain gorilla, but tend to live at lower elevations and incorporate more fruit into their diet. But very little is known about Grauer’s gorilla ecology or behavior because they have not been well studied in the wild. Grauer’s gorillas mainly live in the forests of the Albertine Rift, which is recognized as one of Africa’s most important areas for biodiversity conservation.
