Local fauna includes birds like the aguila -eagle- harpía (Harpya harpyja), the jabirú (Jabiru my cteria), the Spatula rosada (Ajaia ajaja), the wild goose (Neochen jubata), the guacamayo (Ara sp.), the tucan (Ramaphastos sp.), and the jungle condor (Sarcoramphus papa); also mammals such as the puma, heron (Trigrisoma sp.) the shansho (Opisthocomus hoazin), the leoncito -small lion - (Cebuella pygmaea), the cotomono (Alovatta seniculus), the maquisapa negro (Ateles paniscus), the mono choro (Lagothrix Lagotricha), the fraile -monk- (Saimini scivreus), the tapie (Tapirus terrestris), the sajino (Tayassu tajacu), the river wolf (Pteronura brasiliensis), the otorongo (Panthero onca) among others.

There are also several types of fishes such as the zúngaros, doncellas and the piranha.
