The Western Lowland Gorilla is a subspecies of the Western Gorilla that lives in montane, primary, and secondary forests and lowland swamps throughout all or parts of Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. Of all gorillas it is the least endangered and is the gorilla that you will usually find in zoos.

The Western Lowland Gorilla eats plants and, occasionally, insects. They live in family groupings consisting of one dominant male, 5 to 7 adult females, children and adolesants, and possibly a few non-dominant males.
