Gorillas are the world’s largest living primates. During your Uganda gorilla trek, you get to know how big is the silverback gorilla and how amazing it is that such a tiny baby gorilla could grow into a silverback.
Infant mountain gorillas weigh about 1.4−1.8kg when they are born. That is half the weight of the average human infant! However, gorillas grow faster and reach maturity at around 12 years old. By the time they’re adults, gorillas end up weighing almost thrice an average human.
Fully erect male mountain gorilla stand up to 6 feet/2 meters tall and can weigh up 220 kilograms (485 pounds) with an arm span of 8ft. Females tend to be shorter (about 4 feet) and weigh roughly half what the males do (up to 113 kg).
