Gorilla Beringei Graueri
The Eastern Lowland Gorilla is the largest of the 4 gorilla species.Despite that they mostly feed on fruits and other herbacious substances. Other than size they are destinguished by their short snout and pointy head. The gorilla's thumbs are larger than the fingers. The face, ears, hands, and feet are bare, and the chest in old males lacks hair. As males age they begin to lose hair just as a human does, elders lose the hair on top of their head and chest.
