The Western lowland gorilla has many adaptations that help it live in West Africa’s tropical rain forests. They have opposable thumbs that help it climb and grab rocks or fruit. They also have strong arms to defend themselves. They also have short but sharp teeth that can rip the leaves and bugs in their mouth. In the future it’s gonna get really hot and dry so there won't be any more trees and plants in the rain forest so they need to become carnivores. They would need to have even longer arms to scare other animals away. They would also have claws to dig for water in the ground. They would need to have longer legs to chase prey or run away. These are the adaptations that the Western lowland gorilla needs to get if it wants to survive in 1,000 years.
