The western lowland gorilla can be up to 6 feet tall when standing and can weigh up to 450 pounds. It has a broad chest, a muscular neck, and strong hands and feet. Short, thin, grey-black to brown-black hair covers the entire body except the face. It has a thick ridge of bone jutting out above its eye, and flared nostrils. In comparison to the mountain gorilla, the western lowland gorilla has a wider and larger skull. Also, the big toe of the western lowland gorilla is spread far apart from the alignment of his other four toes compared to the alignment in mountain gorillas. This beautiful Gorilla crown from the Republic of Liberia was issued in 1994.
