What is The Size of the Mountain Gorilla?

How Long Does Gorilla Trekking Take in Uganda, Rwanda, Congo Africa? How Long is a Trek to See Gorillas

One of the most frequently asked questions about mountain gorillas are:-How big are mountain gorillas? What is the average weight of a mountain gorilla? How tall is a gorilla standing up? What is the size of the biggest gorilla? What is the size of the Mountain gorilla?

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).

if you are to trek gorillas in Uganda in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park & Mgahinga Gorilla National Park, Rwanda in Volcanoes National Park or the Democratic Republic of Congo in Virunga National Park and Kahuzi Biega National Park
