Monsters & Traps for a D&D 5e Jungle Adventure

Are your adventurers lost in the jungle while looking for that lost temple? Did you send them into the jungle with a treasure map? Let us do the work for you.

My players are currently exploring a jungle island and I needed to find some monsters, beasts, NPCs and traps to throw at my players. This article provides monsters from the Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Monster Manual and some traps that I think fit well in a jungle setting. As I was preparing for my next session, I thought I’d share some of my favorites from the  jungle. I see a jungle as setting that can be as dangerous as the monsters that live in it with trees and vines coming to life, quicksand, spiked pits and more.
