Are You a Gorilla?
By Erin Horner
  

1     Do you have two arms and two legs? Then you might be a gorilla. Do you have four fingers and a thumb on each hand, and fingernails rather than claws? Then you might be a gorilla. Do you like to wrestle and have fun? Then you might be a gorilla. Do you make silly faces to show how you are feeling? Then you might be a gorilla. Do you walk around on your knuckles and eat 40 pounds of leaves each day? You don't? Then I guess you are not a gorilla!
 
2     Gorillas are very large primates. They live in Africa. They are similar to humans in many ways. But they are also very different. Like humans, gorillas have two arms and two legs. A gorilla's arms, however, are much longer than their legs. The average gorilla is six inches shorter than an adult man. But his arms are more than a foot longer than an adult man's!
