Caption

Mountain gorilla (Gorilla beringei beringei) cradling a young baby in its arms. Mountain gorillas are found in cloud forests high on the slopes of the Virunga volcanoes between Rwanda, Uganda and Zaire. The high elevation and rainfall makes this habitat wet and cold. The adults eat many kilograms of vegetation daily (roots, leaves and stems) and can reach over 2 metres in height. Infants stay with their mothers for 3 to 4 years. This slow reproductive rate has left mountain gorillas vulnerable to habitat destruction, poaching and war, making them highly endangered. Photographed in Virunga National Park, Rwanda.
