Amazon Animals That Can Kill You

These are the dangerous animals that you may have not even known about in one of the most dangerous places on earth.

The Top Ten Amazon Animals That Can Kill You

1 Jaguar The jaguar is a wild cat species and the only extant member of the genus Panthera native to the Americas.

The jaguar isn't only the dangerous land predator in the amazon it's the most dangerous out of all the big cats. With extreme power the Jaguar has more bite force than even a lion or a tiger! They are extremely light on their feet so you wouldn't be able to hear them and then will pounce on when your back is turned and are vulnerable. It will go for the back of the head and neck to deliver a crushing bite and most likely it will end up killing its victim.

I agree. In the T.V. cartoon, Go Diego Go, Diego keeps a baby jaguar at his side. - playstationfan66

2 Brazilian Wandering Spider

Spiders are feared all around the world and especially this one. This spider has actually showed up in packaged banana's and almost bite people in stores. This spider is extremely aggressive and has tragic toxic venom that can kill you in a matter of minutes. Usually if you're not close to a hospital you're not going to live barely anyone has survived this killer's bite.

Brazilian Wandering Spider; the most dangerous spider in the world.

3 Poison Dart Frog

You should know not to touch a Dart Frog. If you see a frog with shiny colors don't touch it! It has deadly venom which causes a huge reaction and most of the time death. The dangerous thing is all you have to do is touch this frog... There's no spines, bite nothing. There is no anti venom either so it could be a quick death and you wouldn't even know what happened.

Poison Dart Needles are often used to drain the poison out of the Poison Dart Frogs and placed into Poison Dart Guns by hunters to lure someone to sleep and shot with real guns. - playstationfan66

If you touch this thing (and it's venom gets into your bloodstream), the only thing you can do is lay down on the floor for 3 minutes because death is inevitable.

4 Scorpion

Scorpion's and spiders are a problem everywhere in the world but in the tropical jungles it gets worse. Scorpion stings probably aren't as bad as a snake bite but it can definitely pack a punch. Scorpions kill hundreds each year although there is an anti venom usually if you aren't able to get to the hospital in time you can suffer a slow and painful death.

We have a lot of scorpions over here in Arizona and man they freak me out. They have claws, a stinger, and even can bite you! I wouldn't want to be somewhere were scorpions are even more dangerous!

5 Piranha A piranha or piraƱa, a member of family Characidae in order Characiformes, is a freshwater fish that inhabits South American rivers, floodplains, lakes and reservoirs.

The piranha aren't as much as a threat as people say they are at least to humans. But with other wildlife they can strip animals of flesh down to the bone within a few short seconds. They travel in many numbers working as a team to eat out of all the flesh of the victim.

6 Bushmaster Snake

The Bushmaster is extremely dangerous it is able to strike something multiple times without someone or thing even knowing it. You a lot of the times can't tell it's there and it has a huge amount of reach more than 3 feet to strike you! Although it's rarely encountered it injects large amounts of venom and is extremely dangerous.

7 Crocodile Crocodiles or true crocodiles are large aquatic reptiles that live throughout the tropics in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australia.

This Animal will come up to you and tear you to shreds. For a big animal you think it will have big teeth, you are right. It will tear you to shreds.

Crocodiles are also found in the Louisiana swamps in North America. If I try to go to the Louisiana swamps, the crocodiles might get me. - playstationfan66

Watch out, I think this the most dangerous animal in the world if you agree vote for the crocodile

I am the one that added the crocodile. If this thing gets mean good bye you

8 Martinique Lancehead Snake

This snake is the deadliest snake in the Amazon. It's not the venomous, but it kills the most people. They're very aggressive and aren't afraid to strike. Also, they have the second largest fangs of all venomous snakes. - MEparandriod

These don't live in the amozon. The normal lancehead does

9 Black Caiman

The Black Caiman is the exquisite killer of the murky waters. It's very hard to see in water since of its color and drags it's prey into the murky depths where it will either drown or tear it's prey. It's responsible for a lot of deaths in South America such as farmers or fisherman and others who get too close to medium sized ponds or rivers.

10 Bull Shark The bull shark is a requiem shark that is considerably dangerous. These sharks live in both freshwater and saltwater environments. Bull sharks can be recognized by seeing a shark in freshwater and watching the shark due a hit and run.

This is a lot less common especially since bull sharks aren't really found that much in the amazon. But even though it isn't that likely if they are there then they can definitely kill. Of course everyone should know that they can stay in freshwater as long as they want and are the most aggressive out of any of the sharks. Good luck getting a bull shark to let go once it bites you.

The Contenders

11 Anaconda Anacondas are group of large snakes of the genus Eunectes. They are large snakes found in tropical South America.

The anaconda actually isn't known for killing a lot of people but it could if it really wanted to. It can grow over 30 feet long and travels through water and on land swallowing some of the largest creatures whole. It is the king of all snakes and is the slithering horror of the amazon.

Getting squeezed to death and suffocated alive? That's a worse death than I can ever imagine! This animal eats live gators so it would have no problem eating a little kid or even a person!

A snake that squeezes the life out of me, and then it swallows me whole.

12 Giant Anteater

Not a lot of Anteater attacks have been reported but they can do some serious damage. They are supremely strong and have long claws that can tear and severely wound any threats or predators nearby. They have even been able to kill jaguar's before. You may not think their dangerous but they can easily kill.

I love ant eaters even though I don't know what the giant anteater is I'm going search it up - Thump

I Love ant eaters :D I'm going to search it up right now - Thump

13 Amazionian Army Ants
14 Alligator An alligator is a crocodilian in the genus Alligator of the family Alligatoridae. The two living species are the American alligator and the Chinese alligator. Additionally, several extinct species of alligator are known from fossil remains.
15 Electric Eel

It is very dangerous and can kill you in on shot they have loads of electricity in their body and that keeps predators away but if you ever spot one in the wild don't even think about touching it because you will be on your way to the hospital
