The spined larupia is a creature that players can capture with the Hunter skill at level 31 or above, granting 180 Hunter experience.
Although spined larupias are Combat level 40, they are non-attackable. They can however attack players, dealing up to 5 damage.
Trapping one of these is a task from the medium Western Provinces Diary.
The hunting technique is the same as for other pitfall trapping. Players must bring a teasing stick, a knife and any type of logs (except for redwood logs) to the hunting spot location. By clicking on a pit, the player will create a spiked pit. After this, the player should tease a spined larupia, lure it towards the set up trap, and jump over the trap. If successful, the creature will attempt to walk over the trap, and fall into the pit. Finally, the player needs to dismantle the trap in order to get rewarded with the loot and Hunter experience.
It is advised to bring an axe to the hunter area, since the player could cut jungle trees for an unlimited supply of logs while hunting these creatures.
Larupia fur and tatty larupia fur can be used to make spined larupia armour.
- The spined larupia is a large type of feline-like animal. It somewhat resembles a cougar with spines on its back.
