The chief silverback, Agashya, charged us in a breathtaking bluff. Then he lay down and picked his feet, leaned back, and stared at the sky. Mountain gorillas are often seen brooding. Other than that, they eat a lot of bamboo. Or sleep.
At one point, we were surrounded by gorillas. Magic! We had to move back often because they sometimes came too close - especially the babies.
