G is for Gorilla

By Jose

Gorillas are found on the continent of Africa. They live in the jungle and eat bamboo, bark, buds, fruit and leaves. An adult gorilla weighs about 450 pounds. A gorillas head has a ridge of bone called a crest on top of the skull. Gorillas feet have a ''thumb'' and resemble the animals hand. Such feet help the gorilla climb trees. My Beanie Baby is Congo the Gorilla. He was born November 16, 1996. He is brown and had a long tail.
