This was a rare moment where we could sit down close to the group and just enjoy watching them groom and eat. The Sabinyo family has around 9 members. They are in flux at the moment (June 2010) as one of the females is prone to wandering off and will probably find a new group soon. Two of the females, one of which you see clearly here, is pregnant. Female mountain gorillas are pregnant for around 9 months.
