The following animals are killed on-screen: a coati (mistaken for a muskrat), a large turtle, a tarantula, a boa constrictor, a squirrel monkey, and a pig. The BBFC called these kills "quick," but the turtle's death is fairly slow.

A scene with a turtle shows an actual turtle being killed. They killed it on set. So yeah the scene is as real as it gets. Pretty sure some crew members started crying after they filmed it.

It's the hallmark of this genre of film (of which this title is king) that the gore is graphic, intense (often violent) and relentless.

After one character falls onto a skeleton and its face is shown close up, another character vomits profusely (audio and visual).
Right after the turtle's head gets cut off, a character vomits onto a log. There is some buildup so it should be easy to avoid.

The indigenous people (some tribes) walk around naked. Plus, there is lots of other nudity too, like in s*x scenes and such. The main characters strip at some points in the movie.

The indigenous woman the film crew rapes is a virgin. It is later mentioned how such tribes take virginity very seriously. But this is due to rape and not a voluntary loss of virginity if that's what this trigger is.

It really depends on how upset the film crew dying is to you as a viewer. The documentary crew do die in very gruesome ways, but they also spend the entire film committing horrific atrocities against the Yanomami to make a documentary full of racist misrepresentations of their society.
