Amazon Creature List of Common Names
Birds, Mammals and Reptiles Sorted Alphabetically

Scarlet Macaw

This very long alphabetical list of creatures is helpful for making checklists. But a list sorted by genus is more helpful for researching species. See our Bird List sorted by scientific name.

The following list is an actual list created by Amazon Nature Tours on one of our tours. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of creatures found in the Amazon, but rather a record of the creatures we observed. The trip took place in the State of Amazonas, Brasil with some species observed also in the States of Para and Matto Grosso do Sul. Appended to the bird list are brief Mammal and Reptile lists.
