A newborn baby gorilla at Melbourne Zoo in Australia gets a checkup at the hospital and shows suprise at the coldness of the stethoscope. Like humans, gorillas have two legs and two arms, 10 fingers and 10 toes, small ears on the side of the head, forward-looking eyes and 32 teeth. Unlike us, their arms are longer and more muscular than their legs, and their big toes look like thumbs. Their bodies are covered by thick dark hair, except on the face, chest, underarms, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. An adult male gorilla becomes a “silverback” at about age 15 when he is full grown and the hair on his back turns silvery-grey.
