The Limpkin, "Aramus guarauna", is a bird that looks like a large rail but is skeletally closer to cranes. It is the only extant species in the genus "Aramus" and the family Aramidae. It is found mostly in wetlands in warm parts of the Americas, from Florida to northern Argentina. It feeds on molluscs, with the diet dominated by apple snails of the genus "Pomacea".
