The Mountain Gorilla is a very social animal living in cohesive groups boned together by long-term relationships between male and female gorillas. The Mountain gorilla groups are not territorial; the silverback male defends his group rather than his territory. The size of a normal gorilla group varies. Some vary from five to thirty five with an average of ten gorillas. The silverback is the dominant figure in the group, leading the group to feeding grounds, mitigating conflict within the group or outside predators, becomes the center of attention during rest sessions, and in addition, takes younger Gorillas under his wing who stay close to him and includes them in his games.
