Native to the swamps, lagoons, and marshes of the southern United States, Mexico, and Central America, the Anhinga, also known as the snakebird and American darter, is a bird that hunts freshwater fish by spearing them with its slender, needle-like beak.
The name anhinga comes from the Brazilian Tupi language, and it means snake bird. Anhingas were given this name because when they’re in the water only their neck is visible, and it looks remarkably like a snake. While there is no concrete number for the worldwide anhinga population, they are classified as a species of least concern due to how commonly they are sighted in their natural habitat.
