The mother of the infant gorillas can take care of one baby at time and it she have more than or multiple babies then she may also kill to breed one because she may find difficult to care both at time. She takes control till the baby gorilla is about 3 to 4 year older. The baby gorillas get grown up twice the rate on which human babies are grown.
They started to climb and crawl along with their mother at an average age of 3 and as soon as they learnt to climb they are separated from their mothers. The family of gorilla is dependent on mothers because they take care of younger ones.
Female gorillas help to provide there younger ones with necessary foods, transportations and also in socialization. Males mostly do not take care of the younger ones and they also defend their younger ones if there is any battle with other group or one male wanting control over the group.
