The gorilla is the largest of the great apes and it occurs in scattered populations across a large swathe of equatorial Africa. There are now recognised to be two species of gorilla, the Eastern gorilla and the Western gorilla. Both are endangered, and the Western gorilla critically so. The Western gorilla typically lives in smaller groups and has a larger home territory than the Eastern gorilla, and its diet is predominantly fruit rather than vegetation, as in the Eastern species. The most closely observed of the gorillas is the Mountain gorilla subspecies of the Eastern gorilla, which occurs in Rwanda, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo, and is a popular subject for wildlife travel tours.
