The gorillas live in groups of families with silver backs and female and According to Wikipedia, “The mountain gorilla is highly social, and lives in relatively stable, cohesive groups held together by long-term bonds between adult males and females. Relationships among females are relatively weak.
These groups are non-territorial; the Silverback generally defends his group rather than his territory.”
Mountain Gorilla life span is 40-50 years.
