A Limpkin hurrying back from the water's edge with an Apple Snail it just caught.

The Apple Snail population is now well established at Green Cay and this has lead to a significant increase in the number of Limpkins here as Apple Snails are their favorite food.

As for the Apple Snails, the are Island Apple Snails which are not native to south Florida ... can you say "invasive species?" ... does it matter?
