The gorilla, it is the largest primates of today, adult males weight 135 - 180 kg (300 - 400 lb), exceptional large individuals can weight up to 230 kg (500 lb), females are about half that weight.  Males gorillas are 1.7 to 1.8 m in height, 2.3 - 2.6 m arm span.  Despite its intimidating appearance, the gorilla is a relatively gentle giant, foraging on the jungle ground for its vegetarian diet.  There are 3 subspecies of gorillas, all living in central Africa, the Western lowland gorilla(Gorilla. gorilla), these are the ones you see in zoos around the world, they have a very distinct face.  The other slightly larger is the Eastern lowland gorilla(Gorilla. beringei. graueri)  and the mountain gorilla(Gorilla. beringei. beringei), the two eastern subspecies are now classified as Gorilla. beringei.
