How much Water does a Gorilla usually Drink in a Day and how much do they Eat?

Gorillas don’t drink water, but they sure eat a lot.

Gorillas get all the moisture they need from the leaves, tubers, flowers, fruit, fungus, and insects they eat, roughly fifty pounds of food a day.

That’s a lot of food. Gorillas spend most of the day eating.

They have long canines that allow them to crush and chew tough plants like bamboo.

Lowland gorillas feed mainly on fruit while Mountain gorillas feed mostly on herbs, stems and roots.
