Gorillas are thoughtful creatures who live in the tropical forests of central Africa and are the largest members of the ape family. Gorillas live in groups lead by a silverback, dominant adult male, who leads the family. One of the reasons they seem so human is that they share more than 98% of their genetic code with us.
