Transcript of Mountain Gorilla

Mountain Gorilla Capstone Project
Social Studies
The diet that the mountain gorilla has is varieties of plants. Favorites snacks include, wild celery, bamboo, thistles, stinging nettles, bith, bananas, bedstraw, and Galium. These plants seem to provide sufficient moisture, so that gorillas do not need water. They are mammals and omnivores. Their size is 4 to 6ft. The lifespan of a mountain gorilla can be 30-50 years old. The weight of a mountain gorilla 300-450 lbs for females and around 200 for a male. The height of a mountain gorilla can be around 5.5 feet for males, 4.5-5 feet for females. Their mating season is throughout the year. Gestation 8.5 months. Also, their litter size is up to 1 baby.

The selling price for infant gorillas can run from about $15,000 to $40,000. It costs 25$ per week for treats and food. It will cost $1,300 to have your gorilla fed all year long. Most primate owners choose to diaper their pets as they can't be easily or reliably house trained. A three to four month supply of diapers costs around $65. If you want a pet sitter while you go out it will cost $10 per 15 hrs so for a year if it will cost about $21,900 for a pet sitter.Trees costs an average of $138, compared to $167 for two, $191 for three, $228 for four, and $267 for five trees. Larger planting projects of more than five trees may cost $344.

Did You Know?
I hope you liked this project me and my friend Rian did about Mountain Gorillas and hope you donate to save them from diseases and other wildlife livings outdoors.
The mountain gorilla lives in the Virunga Volcano part of Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of Congo Africa. It’s thick vegetation is full and is on the mountains.
The temperature is based around 60 degrees Fahrenheit during day and at night 15 degrees. There are usually two rainy seasons and two dry seasons where they live. Mountain gorillas usually don't get to close to the volcano. Also, if their habitat is unguarded, their habitat can possibly burn.

Welcome to our Bronx Zoo. My name is Errol Salkey and this is my partner Rian Massaro. We are going to talk about our gorilla named Jeff. Our friend, Jeff as you can see is a mountain gorilla. Now, i'm going to give you some facts about him. He and his species of mountain gorillas are mammals, and are also omnivores. Their size is 4 to 6ft, but females are bigger and weigh bigger than the male. Jeff's group name is Troop or Band. Jeff is also a vegetarian. The mountain gorillas are also the endangered animals of their kind. Jeff's mating season is throughout the year. The gestation is 8.5 months. The litter size is up to 1 baby. The black market for baby gorillas is growing and officials in the Democratic Republic of Congo said Tuesday, after a fourth incident this year led to the arrest of alleged poachers trying to sell one infant for $40,000. Mountain gorillas cost between $4,000 and $8,000 each, depending on the its age, rarity and temperament. Younger and more rare and friendlier mountain gorillas tend to cost more. Anymore questions?

Did you know that there are only 880 mountain gorillas left in the world- and the number of Grauer's gorillas is on the precipitous decline? It is critical to ensure the health and well being of every individual gorilla. About 480 gorillas live in the Virunga Volcanoes. Massif, which spans Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park, DR Congo’s Virunga National Park, and Uganda’s Mgahinga National Park. Another 400 gorillas live in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Uganda. No one knows exactly how many Grauer's gorillas survive in the wild, but it is believed that there are fewer than 8,500 and that number is shrinking. They are also going through threatening trauma and diseases. People are also taking samples of blood from these animals and saliva for testing.

Thank you

Mountain gorillas live in groups called a troop leaded by a dominant silverback male, and are highly sociable animals, maintaining strong bonds between group members.
Upon their discovery, gorillas were classified as one species, however they are now separated into two species and four sub species according to geographical location and physical characteristics. Also, gorillas are classified as mammals, which is defined by the Oxford English dictionary as a ‘Warm-blooded vertebrate animal that has hair or fur, secretes milk, and (typically) bears that live young. The lifespan can be from 30-50 years for the gorilla. Hope you have a good time on the rest of the tour.
