4 ways to be the top ape


1. Pick your battles

Don’t challenge a bigger gorilla. Getting in a fight with a gigantic silverback could result in injuries, so it’s best to be patient and wait for your turn to take the top spot.


2. Become large and in charge

Only the biggest and strongest gorilla is fit to defend his family, so  silverback gorillas have to eat their vegetables to grow to their maximum size!


3. Master and commander

Getting the biggest portions of the family food is a must. The younger gorillas usually wait there turn, but a budding silverback won’t let the youngsters step out of line.


4. Defend your top spot

Don’t tolerate challenges from smaller gorillas, and protect your gang from invading males and you’ll keep your silverback status for life!
