The population structure of Mountain Gorillas shows an advancement from that of orang-utans based on the family structure. The males have bonded relationships with females and the offspring and in some cases, families combine to create small, nomadic tribes of Gorillas. Sometimes these tribes can reach 40 members. Gorillas are forced to be nomadic creatures because of their diet. They need a great deal of food, and have to travel in order to find a big enough supply to feed them all. Gorillas travel during the day and stop at night, sleeping in trees and on the ground. They create beds of mattress’ and branches and leaves for a nest. The silver back will be security watch during the night, sitting with his back against a tree, on a pile of leaves, with his powerful arms crossed over his massive chest.
