Hi Vince, thanks so much for your question! We can't know for sure, since all gorillas live in Africa, but I understand your question. This question hasn't been tested in gorillas specifically (to my knowledge), however, primatologists have discovered "regional dialects" in calls of some primates - they change like accents, depending on where the primate lives! As for whether or not other primates can recognize where other primates are from, we'll have to do more research to find out!
