Anhinga

anhingaAnhinga – Orlando Wetlands Park – April 2015

The anhinga – also known as a snake bird because it swims with it’s body completely below the water and looks like a snake. Also, in response to a question I was asked on Saturday anhinga is a Brazilian tupi word. And tupi was a prevalent language in Brazil prior to the arrival of the Portuguese.
