To make it easier to picture the limpkiin in the wild, browse the images below.
You will find limpkins (aramus guarauna) in warm freshwater marshes and swamps, often with tall reeds, as well as mangroves, in warm part of the Americas from Florida in the United States, southern Mexico, the Caribbean. Central American, northwestern Soutn America and South America east of the Andes mountains south to northern Argentina. In the Caribbean it also inhabits dry brushland. Essentially you will find limpkins where you find apple snails.
Their yellowish, long, heavy, downcurved bill has a darker tip and the bill is slightly open near, but not at, the tip, giving it a tweezers like action in removing apple snails from their shells. They are strong fliers on long, broad, rounded wings with their necks forward and their legs and feet trailing. They have a short tail and long toes that help them walk on floating vegetation when looking for apple snails and help make them good swimmers.
