I found this video fascinating, I just want to share with everybody on the site.
This video is about a team of explorers that go to Rwanda to see different families of mountain gorillas or silverbacks. They demonstrate in this video how silverbacks are not aggressive as they are portrayed in Hollywood movies. They are vegetarians and do not eat meat. They have families with children and usually one lead silverback male protects family. The large males way around 400 to 450 pounds. The thing I found most interesting about this video is that the silverback male mountain gorilla seems nonaggressive and very peaceful.
On a trip to Rwanda, explore had the opportunity to visit four families of wild mountain gorillas, a species with only 720 remaining members. Their guide is Craig Sholley, who has been intimately involved in the preservation of African wildlife for more than 30 years. The team's thrilling interaction with these peaceful creatures - who share 98.6% of their genetic makeup with humans - is a startling reminder of their own humanity. Distributed by Tubemogul.
