Because of their young age, the two baby gorillas are not always on display at The Bronx Zoo with appearances depend on the weather and temperature conditions.

The moms have been spending time playing with their three-month-old cuties that were only born 48 hours a part. The babies love to hitch a rides on their mom's back.

They snuggle up together for some cuddle time and even be carried grasping on to their arm. But they also love playing some active games.

The baby gorillas weighed only four pounds at birth but will eventually grow to more than 400 pounds as adults.
