Mountain Vs Lowland Gorillas

Africa is home to both the mountain and lowland eastern gorillas. They are the largest primates in the world and closet mammals similar to man. Both species are classified as critically endangered as per the International Union for Conservation of Nature(IUCN) red list.

The Gorilla beringei berengei and Gorilla beringei graueri have similar characteristics but are unique in their own right. Here are some of the differences.
