A mother gorilla looks exhausted as her infant tries to wrestle with her in the jungle of Rwanda's Virunga Mountains. Young gorillas are known for their playful behavior, often somersaulting over the adults' bodies and wrestling with each other. This playful behavior teaches young gorillas how to interact within the group and adult gorillas encourage their play.
