Mountain gorillas have emerged from the list of endangered species


High mountain gorillas are called silver gorillas, and this is because their appearance is covered with silver hair that grows with age.

The average weight of the mountain gorilla is 195 kilograms and its height is about 150 centimeters.

He lives in the volcanic region covered by forests outside the West African rift where the borders between Rwanda, Congo and Uganda meet.

Its natural habitat has breeds that are not found elsewhere, including gold monkeys.

The strain is threatened by fishermen, political disturbances and diseases, including the Ebola virus.

"The greatest threat to the number of mountain gorillas will be the emergence of a highly contagious new disease, because it will be very difficult to control," Williamson said.
