When Ace lures the 2 poachers guarding the bat away by making gorilla calls, one of them identifies the calls as being a female "Silverback" Gorilla. The term Silverback doesn't refer to any specific breed of Gorilla and more importantly it would never be female as the trait only appears in male gorillas once they reach breeding age.
