Range: The Eastern Low Land Gorillas - only found in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Only surviving in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the eastern low land gorilla specie (Grauer’s gorilla) is a sub specie of the eastern gorillas alongside the mountain gorillas in the virunga conservation area and their population is less than 5000 in the whole world. The eastern lowland gorilla is the largest of the four gorilla subspecies and is distinguished from other gorillas by its stocky body, large hands and short muzzle.

The eastern lowland gorilla is an omnivorous animal, but the majority of its diet is made up of eating fruit which the eastern lowland gorilla is known to travel vast distances through the forests to find. The eastern lowland gorilla also eats leaves, nuts and berries, along with insects and occasionally small animals such as lizards and rodents. The eastern lowland gorilla has also been observed using basic tools in the wild in order to more effectively gather food.
