Apple snails (Pomacea lineata)
The Pantanal is a large system of wetlands, which floods annually. During and after the flood there are deep layers of decomposing matter, and the Apple Snails which have both gills and lungs (and a long snorkel), can thrive in the anoxic waters and deal with recycling the dead plants.
