A wading marsh bird related to the rails, with long legs and a long bill, found in the southeastern US and tropical America.
- Aramus guarauna, the only member of the family Aramidae.
- But there is some worry the pythons may start feeding on birds, such as limpkins, which are not accustomed to defending themselves against nocturnal predators.
- Alas, the cry of the limpkin, a hair-raising screech.
- Its curved bill bits perfectly into a snail shell, allowing the limpkin to deftly extract the mollusk.
