Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Intelligente en sociale hominide, de grootste levende primaat. Ze hebben een grote kop, brede borst, lange armen, een platte neus met grote neusgaten en een zwarte vacht. Volwassen mannetjes hebben een zilverkleurig ���zadel' op de rug. Vergeleken met de westelijke gorilla is de oostelijke gorilla groter en donkerder van kleur, heeft geen overhangende punt op de neus, heeft een robuuster lichaam en leeft minder in bomen en in grotere familiegroepen (van soms wel 40 individuen). In sommige classificaties beschouwt men de oostelijke en westelijke gorilla als één enkele soort.
