Did you know that mountain gorillas eat eucalypt leaves? I still get excited when I see eucalypts anywhere outside Australia. This eucalypt plantation near Volcans National Park Rwanda, is the home of the mountain gorilla.
Eucalypts were introduced from Australia back around 1912, apparently for firewood and building. Low branches of young trees are stripped and used for brush style fences as they dry. Gorillas also like them and strip the bark to get moisture beneath, plus they also like the leaves.
