This article is about an older version of DF.
A huge ape found in the forest. It lives in small groups eating plants. The groups are lead by a large dominant male with a silver back.

Gorillas are giant apes which can easily kill an unarmed peasant. Usually appearing in small groups, it is best to avoid close contact with these beasts unless you are capturing them for taming.

Gorillas are trainable into war/hunting gorillas. See Animal Training for how this is done, and for a list of other trainable creatures.
