I made a test, but I don't understand the adjectives in an appropriate order . Here is

1. The jungle is full of small dangerous animals. (Test answer)
2. The jungle is full of dangerous small animals. (my answer)

dangerous is opinion and small is size, according the rule first must be opinion than the size or I don't understand something.

You are right. The normal rules of adjective order would suggest that #2 is the natural answer.
