Snail Kite (a bird a day)

A bird of prey, similar to the families of hawks, eagles and vultures this bird falls into the “raptors” category. But according to Wikipedia this classification is being investigated. These birds like the warm tropical climates (notice a pattern?). They like to snack on apple snails. Anyone know what an apple snail is?
