|Abstract:||First paragraph: A previously unreported behaviour in mountain gorillas (Gorilla gorilla beringei) studied at the Karisoke Research Centre, Rwanda, is described in this paper. The silverback, Pablo, was seen carrying an infant in front of another silverback, Cantsbee. There is great interspecific and intraspecific variation in male primate interactions with immatures [1, 2]. Amongst the great apes, silverback mountain gorillas [3, 4] and adult male orangutans  rarely interact with infants, adult male chimpanzees transport and play with infants to varying degrees . Two hypotheses are proposed to explain Pablo's behaviour: agonistic buffering  and paternal investment .|
