Some of the following animals are considered the most dangerous in the Amazon. They include:

Mosquitoes: They can carry malaria, Yellow Fever and Dengue fever, the latter cannot be vaccinated and is potentially fatal. To people living in the Amazon, mosquitoes are dangerous because often they cannot afford to buy vaccinations for the diseases or tablets to help treat them. To people who are visiting, mosquitoes shouldn't be too much of a problem as they will have had compulsory vaccination, taking malaria medication such as malarome or doxycycline and been in suitably mosquito-free accommodation with nets up around their beds.

Poison Arrow Frog: Found in the Central and South American rainforests, the Poison Arrow Frog family includes some of the most toxic animals in the world. At two inches long, the golden poison arrow frog is venomous enough to kill 10 grown men.

Bengal Tiger: Found in the Southeast Asian rainforests, the Bengal tiger is the most common type of tiger found in the wild, and the species numbers about half of all living tigers. It has been known to attack humans in extreme conditions.

Jaguar: Found in the Central and South American rainforests, a Jaguar will usually kill its prey with a crushing bite to the skull. Its diet consists of deer, peccary, crocodiles, snakes, monkeys, deer, sloths, tapirs, turtles, eggs, frogs, fish and anything else it can catch.

Green Anaconda:Found in the South American rainforests, it is considered to have the largest overall size of all the snakes in the world. It can grow to two feet and weigh over 550 lbs. Its diet consists of wild pigs, deer, birds, turtles, capybara, caimans and on occasion jaguars. It kills its prey by coiling around it and asphyxiating it.

The Heliconius butterfly species is marked with vibrant red wings that warn of its toxic nature. Brazilian wandering spiders bite with a neurotoxin that brings severe pain to any victim. Animals in the rain forest of the Amazon evolve by developing toxins to ward off predators.
