Toucan

Toucan’s uniqueness among the other animals in the Amazon rainforest is that, it has a bright colored big beak that does little to dispel the notion that it is not a noisy bird. Its other colors are black, white around the neck and chest area coupled with brilliant blue eyes.

It looks colorful but it is very poisonous. The poison is commonly  used by Indian natives to make a poisonous blowdarts.

 

Golden Lion Tamarin

It is a species of tree-dwelling monkeys; one of the many unusual animals of the Amazon rainforest. It got its name due to its extra long hair in its face with  bright reddish orange coloring that gives the impression of a lion’s mane.
