      Male mountain gorillas develop their silver back when they go through puberty typically between the ages of 11 and 13.  Puberty takes place over several years, so it can take a few years for the coat of hair to develop.

    Silverbacks are male gorillas. They develop a silver tinge on their back by the time they are 13 years old, when they are considered adults. Silverbacks become the alpha leader of their troop, which can consist of 30 apes.
