About them

At birth newborn gorillas weigh just about four pounds but a fully grown male gorilla weighs about four hundred pounds. Mountain gorillas live in troops of about thirty gorillas. The troop is lead by one alpha male, who keeps order in the troop and fathers the majority of the young. Female gorillas can produce young at the age of ten. They carry one or two babies at a time, and in their life give birth to anywhere from two to six.
