Gorillas live in Africa, excepting their relatives that can be found in captivity all around the world. But in the wild, they live in Africa.
Of course it goes a little deeper than that. There are three different breeds of gorillas, each claiming a different part of Africa for its home.
The Western Lowland Gorilla: This race of gorilla can be found in Equatorial Guinea, Congo, Cameroon, Gabon, and the Central Africa Republic. This group of apes have a brownish gray coat, and the male’s white saddle goes all the way to the rear and upper thighs.
The Eastern Lowland Gorilla: This breed can be mainly found in Zaire. Its coat is black, but for the male’s customary white saddle which is restricted to their backs with this race.
The Mountain Gorilla: We bet you can guess where to find the mountain gorillas, can’t you? Yup, in the mountains! You’ll find them in the higher altitudes of Zaire, Rwanda, and Uganda. They resemble the Eastern breed, but their arms are a bit shorter and their hair a bit longer.
