The images were captured by Ian Redmond during a trip to the slopes of Mount Karisimbi in Rwanda.

The video shows eight endangered mountain gorillas lying on a pile in the wild, surrounded by greenery.

The two smallest gorillas of the group are the most animated while waving their limbs.

Birds can be heard tweeting in the background next to the occasional shutter click of a camera.

The group's baby then walks over to a family member and clamps over it before being playfully thrown away.

Fearless, it tries to climb again and nibbles at the feet of its older counterpart.

While this game fight continues, one of the larger gorillas that was sniffed up to this point stands up and walks to a tree.

He grabs the plant by standing on his hind legs and pulls him towards him.

It releases the branch as the leaves fly away and fall to the ground before it jumps back into place.

The family group keeps spinning around and shuffling while enjoying their lazy day.

Ian said the monkeys & # 39; were completely at ease with their human visitors & # 39 ;.

The mountain gorilla is one of & # 39; the world's most endangered species, but they are gradually increasing in number.

Their population has grown by a quarter since 2010 and now there are an estimated just over 1,000 left in the wild.
