Mountain gorillas are a species of gorilla that live in the tropical rainforest. The mountain gorilla's habitat is slowly being cut down and destroyed because of climate change and so today I will guide you on how the mountain gorilla adapts to this new wilderness. Habitat- the mountain gorillas habitat is being cut down and destroyed for houses and wood so they might have to migrate to caves and to stay safe leading to a new eye and ear adaptation because of the darkness in the caves Skeletal adaptations- the gorillas need to slip through small cracks in caves therefore Their spine will grow straight so that they may fit more easily in caves their skulls will grow to handle their brain mass and connect to their straight spines. They will lose the ability to use their feet as hands and use them for walking in and out of caves
