*A young male Mountain Gorilla (Gorilla gorilla beringei) pounds his chest and practices his mock charge, a skill he will have to perfect if he is ever going to be the leader of his own family group. Apparently no one told him he was too cute to be intimidating. *

    Great write up and adorable image! How far are you from them when you photograph? Are you in a vehicle?

  • Thanks! We hiked up the mountain for about an hour before we found this family group. We humans stood still and the gorillas just did their thing and approached quite close to us! I was about 30 feet from this little guy. No car, just raw nature!
