Mountain Gorilla Silverback

Mountain Gorilla Silverback

As male mountain gorillas mature, the fur on their back turns from black through gray to almost white – it is the origin of the name ‘silverback’ which signifies a mature gorilla male. By that time, the gorilla will have acquired mating rights, have wrestled or brought together and now have/lead a family of several females and more juveniles. Email to organize a tour to see habituated Mountain Gorilla families in Rwanda and Uganda.
