DO FEMALE GORILLAS BEAT THEIR CHESTS? CHEST POUNDING AMONG FEMALE GORILLAS
Do female gorillas beat their chests? When people think of gorilla chest-beating, they usually think of a huge silverback signaling to another male that he’s in charge. However, anyone in a gorilla group, even females and juveniles, may be seen pounding the chest.
Female gorillas usually beat their chests when quarreling with another female group member, or when a juvenile is provoking her. A juvenile (young) gorilla can also chest beat if it wants to initiate playtime with other gorillas.
