I am sure many of you remember the movie 'King Kong'. In the movie, a giant gorilla enters the city of New York and terrorizes the people there. Contrary to what many people think, real gorillas are not violent and brutal beasts at all. In fact, they are gentle and shy in nature. Neither do gorillas go around killing humans or animals for food. Instead, they are vegetarians and they live mainly on a diet of leaves, stems, roots and flowers.

Gorillas will only attack when they feel threatened. This is why zoologists studying these animals are careful not to observe them through binoculars for long periods of time.

Today, gorillas living in the wild face many threats. This is because many of the forests in the world are being cut down. Because the natural habitats of these creatures are being destroyed, gorillas face the threat of extinction in the future. To help save the gorillas from extinction, some of these animals are bred in captivity in zoos all over the world. The Singapore Zoological Gardens obtained its first pair of gorillas in 1983. The two gorillas, whose names were Saul and Goliath, were a present/gift from the Bristol Zoo in England.
