You are Effie!

You got Effie, the strong and tough matriarch of the troop. You are very no nonsense in your daily life, and are not afraid to take charge if the situation is getting out of hand. You have an obvious soft spot for family, and always make sure they are safe and out of harm’s way.

In Dian Fossey’s day, Effie was the dominant female of Group 5 and she wasn’t afraid to make sure everyone knew it. Never shy with her warning vocalizations (known as pig grunts) , she kept everyone in line and raised one of the most widespread families in Karisoke. She had a total of eight offspring over her lifetime, and her bloodline is still considerably represented in today’s mountain gorilla population with over 100 descendants!
