The endangered Mountain Gorillas are the largest primates on planet earth and can weigh up to 500pounds, the heaviest Silverback’s (Male Gorilla’s) recorded weight is 585 lbs. They share 98% DNA with humans and can contract cold, flu or any other sickness from humans, that’s why the Uganda Wildlife Authority controls the number of visitors to see Gorillas in National Parks. Gorillas in Uganda can only be seen in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park and Mgahinga Gorilla National Parks, with the former being the best.
