Gorilla Physical Description
Gorillas are born small, each weighing about 2 kg (4.5 lb).
Yet adult females grow to an average weight of 90 kg (200 lb) and a height of 1.5 m (5 ft), and adult males may reach a weight of 140 to 180 kg (310 to 400 lb) and a height of 1.8 m (5.9 ft). Gorilla coats are generally black, with the lower back region turning to gray in adult males. Some gorilla populations have reddish-brown patches on the forehead, and others show white patches around the ears. The adult gorilla has a large head, a broad, flattened nose with flared nostrils, long arms with massive forearms, short and stocky legs, and a protruding abdomen. Its eyes, ears, and genitals are small relative to overall body size.
