Mountain gorillas give birth starting at the age of 15 years and above. They take long to get pregnant like after a period of about 5 years yet their lifespan is between 0-53 years. This is the rationale for their slowly expending number because they take long to give birth yet still, they are few. Any infant in the gorilla’s family has roles to play like entertaining the elders. Their mothers are responsible of taking care of them.

After delivery of these infant gorillas, there are tired and vulnerable. Infant gorillas need and deserve the mother’s tender care in conjunction with the surrounding community so as to avail them with ample and great appeasing environment for nurturing anew born baby. Mountain gorillas’ newborn babies just like any other babies are born weak and tiny though weighing in at about 4 pounds. Their movements are as awkward as those of human infants, but their development is roughly twice as fast. At 3 or 4 months, the infant gorillas can sit upright and can stand with support soon after. It suckles regularly for about a year and is gradually weaned at about 31/2 years, when it becomes more independent. After the weaning, infant gorillas are ready to feed on their own now
