The Beginning of a Giant
This few-days-old gorilla weighed only about 1-2 kg at birth. Fragile and clumsy, it spends initial months of its life clinging tightly to its mother. It learns basic skills from her and establishes its first social connections within the family group. It's incredible that from this delicate infant, a powerful and strong mountain gorilla will eventually emerge – adult males can weigh even over 200 kg. Impenetrable Forest in Uganda
