Filled with valuable information, stunning photographs, and little-known facts, each book in the Amazing Animals series is the perfect choice for anyone looking to learn more about a favorite animal. You may have heard that gorillas are ferocious beasts, but they are actually more like humans than most people know. Besides the physical similarities, gorillas exhibit many of the same emotional behaviors as humans. They smile, frown, and even laugh! In Gorillas, readers will discover how gentle these "ferocious beasts" actually are by learning about their personal relationships, family ties, and survival skills. Readers also learn what is being done to help protect the gorilla from its greatest natural enemy-humans. Book jacket.
