Gorillas are the worlds largest primate weighing upwards of 400lbs. As mainly herbivores they eat mostly bamboo, fruit, seeds, leafy plants, and insects. They are native to African forests and live either in the mountains or the lowlands. Despite stereotypes gorillas live peaceful lives, and tend to avoid conflict. They have daily routines, can feel deep emotions, use tools, and live in family groups called bands or troupes. It’s not hard to see how closely related gorillas are to us upon observation, but it is shocking when you look at their DNA, they are 98.7% human!


Do gorilla’s hold a special place in your heart? Then you might be a gorilla!


Gorillas have big personalities, but are far more gentile than their size and power may suggests. First impressions are not always true. Give others a chance to see that. Raise your head instead of your voice and lead with compassion and understanding. You bring security and protection to anyone inside your circle, and in return they provide you with a sense of belonging. You have everyone’s best interests at heart. Listen to your instincts and don’t be afraid to protect what is yours.




This item is a fine art reproduction print of an original painting done by me, Pearl Pratley. The original artwork was drawn in ink and painted in watercolour and remains in my personal collection today. This animal is part of my Jungle Animal series that I started in 2018.
