If I slice it, it looks tasty.
If I play with it, my hands becomes dirty.
If I leave a mark on it, it becomes red and red.
If I put it on a certain animal, it runs very fast and becomes quite dangerous!

What is the word I am thinking of?

Shrubbery

If I slice it, it looks tasty.

bery looks like berry

If I play with it, my hands becomes dirty.

If you play with the word (rearrange and swap letters), it's somewhat similar to grubby, or rubbish, which are dirty. Alternatively, it contains the letters for brush, which could get paint on your hands. Perhaps robbery, for a metaphorical dirty hands. Or literally, playing with bushes will get your hands dirty!

If I leave a mark on it, it becomes red and red.

Not sure! A bush could blush? Also, shrubbery leaves ruby.

If I put it on a certain animal, it runs very fast and becomes quite dangerous!

If you add hedge (a shrubbery) to a hog, it becomes a hedgehog! Sonic runs fast, and hedgehogs are spiky (dangerous).

    $\begingroup$ "Shrubbery + hog = hedgehog" is possibly my new favorite equation. Thank you for that chuckle :) $\endgroup$

Tomato looks tasty after slicing it

If I play with it, my hands becomes dirty.

La Tomatina is played with tomatoes (in Spain) and people playing it become dirty

If I leave a mark on it, it becomes red and red.

If you put a red mark on tomato, it is red and red

If I put it on a certain animal, it runs very fast and becomes quite dangerous!

If you put it in front of a bull's eyes, the bull becomes angry and runs fast

What is the word I am thinking of?

You are thinking of a TOMATO
