They act tough, but mountain gorillas are really gentle giants. They are playful, peaceful, highly intelligent, and one of our closest animal relatives 98% shared genes with humans. The gorillas live in families, each headed by an adult male called a “silverback” because of its distinctive coloring. Over the years, they’ve been gradually introduced to people, so scientists can study them, and been taught that people won’t hurt them. But this in Congo, humans have betrayed them. Mountain gorillas are under attack.
