Male gorilla in SF zoo.jpg

Classification of Species

G. beringei
G. b. beringei

Gorilla beringei beringei

Behavior & Social Structure

These primates live in groups (called ‘troops’) of up to 30 members consisting of a few younger males, juvenile or adult females, and babies, and is led by a silverback alpha male that is at least 12 years old. The alpha males are highly intelligent and take all the responsibilities, general decisions related to feeding trips, traveling, resting, and other group activities. They make sure that order is maintained within the troop.
The mountain gorillas are normally shy by nature, but when threatened, they can immediately turn aggressive. They display their rage banging on their chests, emitting roars and grunts of disgust. The alpha male usually attacks, while the females will fight to their death to protect their infants.
  • How long do they live

    The longevity of these animals in the wild is about 35 years, and in captivity, approximately 53 years.

    Physical Description: How do they look like

    Height (size): The standing height is between 4 and 6 feet (1.2 to 1.8 m).
    Weight: Adult gorillas weight anything between 300 and 425 pounds.
    Fur/hair/coat: The entire body covered with black, thick to very thick coat.
    Bodily Characteristics: They have a short and thick trunk with a broad chest and strong shoulders. The arms are sturdy and somewhat longer than the stubby legs.
    Facial Features: The eyes and ears are dwarfed by their huge head, while the muzzle is glossy and hairless. Like most other gorillas, their nose is special in the sense that no two mountain gorillas have the same nose print.

  • What do they eat

    Mountain gorillas have herbivorous eating habits and need a lot of food daily. They have an important role in the ecological niche since they consume a variety of leaves, fruits, and plants without clearing the entire site of vegetation, allowing for renewal and regrowth of plant species. Wild bamboo, stinging nettles, celery, bedstraw thistles are their favorite.

    Reproduction & Life Cycle
    The Mountain Gorilla has no specific mating season. The silverbacks father the majority of the young in their groups. The females attain sexual maturity at the age of 10 years and can carry one baby (or at times, twins) during one gestation period, lasting for 8.5 months. They can mother 2 to 6 offspring in a lifetime.

    The newborn weighs around 1.8 kg, and are helpless and dependent. They spend time and travel places clinging on the backs of their mothers until they are four years old. However, the weaning period begins at around 3.5 years.
  • Interesting Facts

    • Mountain Gorillas are scared of water and stay away from the rains, or from getting wet somehow. Young gorillas cross water bodies only if they can avoid getting their feet wet.
    • The plants that these animals consume provide them sufficient moisture so that they do not need to drink water separately.
    • Older adult males are called ‘silverbacks’ since they develop a silver stripe on their backs when they are mature. So, the alpha male must have a silver stripe to become the leader and get accepted by the members.
    • When temperatures are low, group members will huddle close together, remaining motionless for long periods of time to warm themselves.
    • Youngsters often participate in games including wrestling, chasing, and somersaults, along with the parents at times, and are more arboreal. Playing help the babies learn communication and group behavior.
    • They are one of the hairiest gorillas of the world.
    • Baby mountain gorillas have a natural tendency to avoid chameleons and caterpillars.

Amazing Place

Maldives Island

The Maldives, a tropical paradise of pristine beaches, are an archipelago of more than 1,000 coral islands grouped into 26 coral atolls in the Indian Ocean. They lie south-southwest of India and are considered part of Southern Asia. The capital and largest city of the Maldives is Malé.

Tourism is the largest economic industry in the Maldives. A tourist resort in the Maldives consists of an exclusive hotel on its own island, with its population entirely based on tourists and work force, with no local people or houses. These islands developed for tourism are approximately 800 by 200 metres in size and are composed of sand and coral to a maximum height of about 2 metres above the sea. In addition to its beach encircling the island, each island has its own "house reef" which serves as a coral garden and natural aquarium for scuba divers and snorkelers. The shallow water enclosed by the house reef also serves as a large natural swimming pool and protects swimmers from the ocean waves and strong tidal currents outside the house reef.

The Maldives is renowned for its incredible diving opportunities. The crystal clear water and shallow lagoons are perfect for snorkelling, while the reef walls offer a kaleidoscope of sea life for more experienced divers. The Maldives have an amazing diversity of sea life, with corals and over 2000 species of fish, ranging from reef fish and reef sharks to moray eels, rays and whale sharks. The island's many sheltered lagoons also provide the perfect destination to enjoy an adventure-filled family holiday or romantic getaway for two.

The tropical climate is influenced by monsoons, although bright sunny weather with a light sea breeze can be expected most days. The locals speak Dhivehi, with English widely spoken in areas frequented by tourists. The local culture features a lively mix of South Indian, Sinhalese and Arab influences that is reflected in the traditional music, cuisine and art of the island. The monetary unit is the Maldivian Ruffiyaa (MVR), while international credit cards are widely accepted by resorts.

Most tourists will land in the capital, Male, and will be transferred to their hotel either by seaplane or boat. These two means of transport are widely used for most trips between islands. Direct Flights to/from Maldives
There are frequent direct flights to Male from most international destinations including India Sri LankaDubai and major airports in  South-East Asia, as well as an increasing number of charters from Europe. 

This one may come as shock, but every resort is on its own island. This basically means that any fantasy you've had about whisking yourself off to a remote island in the middle of nowhere can pretty much come true if you visit the Maldives. This also means that most of the islands are extremely small, so you'll be around the same people all the time, and unless you take a day trip, you're on the same small square of sand for the entirety of your vacation. There are no malls, movie theaters, or food, drink, and entertainment options outside of your resort, so be sure to research your digs well. 

Guests staying at Dusit Thani Maldives in the Baa Atoll are in for a real treat. During certain times of the year, this resort's beach comes alive with light -- at night -- giving off a starry sky look in the dark waves. While some other resorts claim the presence of bioluminescent plankton, we know without a doubt that you can catch a glimpse here. It's an unforgettable experience, but be sure to check on the timing of this spectacle with the hotel if you're booking specifically to witness the lights.

Holla! My name is Navita Az Zahra from X MIPA 9. You can call me Vita or Navita. I was birth on 2 December 2002. So, I still 14 years old now, that will turn 15 years old in 5 months. I lived in Bandung since I was born. Which is located on Rajamantri II number 8A.

Some people of them, so ambisious to the lesson. It's very hard to get into this school, because the competition is very tight. That must a smart student or a very talented student of sports or musics or science.

Starting from following extracurricular in my elementary school. I always follow the training at my school every Saturday. Someday, my coach talk to my parents that I has a talent of this. So, since that day, my parents more focus to me and support this martial arts. I still remember the first time I joined the competition at Bandung for selection of Team West Java. So unexpected! I was be the runner up of the competition. And then, I follow the national competition and I win it! That was one of unbelievable moments that happens to my life.
