Limpkin

ABA 2

(Aramus guarauna)

In the United States, Limpkin is localized to Florida. Its diet consists almost entirely of apple snails, and its numbers have increased since the introduction of exogenous apple snail species. It gives a very loud scream which at night can be a not-inconsiderable local annoyance to residents of some Florida communities.
