Matama is physically big and as he is still a growing ape, chances are he will be a typically big silverback.
He especially favours Mishaya’s company but is an amiable gorilla that gets along well with all the members of his family. He is also friendly towards visitors and you’ll find him a valuable addition to your gorilla friends on the internet.
