Gorilla’s Head

The gorilla’s jaw structure is remarkably strong, designed to handle a diet of tough vegetation. The powerful muscles attached to their jaws are anchored by the sagittal crest. This anatomy allows them to chew through thick stems and leaves with ease.

Their teeth, particularly the large canines of males, are another notable feature of the gorilla’s head. These canines are used in displays of dominance and for defense. Understanding these features helps us appreciate the gorilla’s adaptations to their environment.
