Gorillas

The strongest animals

Gorillas are one of the strongest animals in the world taking into account size and weight. In general, gorillas are anywhere from four to 10 times stronger than an average adult male human. A well-trained human can lift around 900 pounds of dead weight, while a silverback gorilla can lift around 1,800 pounds. Some gorillas will tear down banana trees to get the fruit. Their grip is so strong that they could crush a crocodile's skull. 1)
