Gorilla’s Head

The nose of a gorilla is another distinctive feature, with large, flaring nostrils that are quite unique among primates. This allows them to have an excellent sense of smell, which is essential for finding food and recognizing individuals. The shape and size of their noses are adapted for their specific needs.

Their sense of smell is not just for foraging; it also plays a role in social interactions. Gorillas use scent to communicate and establish territories. This olfactory ability adds another layer to their complex behaviors.
