George The Gorilla

George is a Eastern Mountain Gorilla, living in Democratic Republic of the Congo (Near Sabinyo Volcano). George is very proud he has become the silver back of the group.

As a gorilla, he tends to defend his group rather than his territory. However, his territory has been diminishing because of the woodcutters trying to expand agricultural land, which worries him. George doesn't like violence, but since he found the axe in the forest, he always carries it.
