FLORIDA APPLE SNAIL
The Florida apple snail is the largest native North American freshwater snail, having a natural range of central and south Florida plus Cuba. Pomacea paludosa is the only native of all the applesnails now in Florida. The snail kite (Rostrthamus sociabilis) almost exclusively feeds on the Florida apple snail. It is also a favorite food of the limpkin.Tweet
