Search for the Bili Ape

In the second of four Radio Expedition reports, NPR's Alex Chadwick continues the search in Central Africa for an elusive member of the ape family. It may be a gorilla, a very large chimpanzee, or perhaps another apelike creature that's unfamiliar to scientists. The mysterious creature is referred to as "the Bili Ape," after the area in the Democratic Republic of Congo where the search is taking place.
