You may have heard that gorillas are ferocious beasts, but they are actually more like humans than most people know. Beside the physical similarities, gorillas exhibit many of the same emotional behaviors as humans. They smile, frown, and even laugh! In this book, readers will discover how gentle these "ferocious beasts" can be by learning about their personal relationships, family ties, and survival skills. They'll also find out what is being done to help protect the gorilla from its greatest natural enemy-humans.
