Carnivorous chinchompas are level 63 Hunter creatures that may be caught using box traps, which can be baited with spicy minced meat. They are found in the Feldip Hunter area, and give 230.5 Hunter experience when caught. They can also be found in one of the private hunter areas unlocked by participating in the Big Chinchompa distraction and diversion. Once caught, they transform into stackable red chinchompas, which can be wielded as a Ranged weapon with a Ranged level of 55.
After completing the player-owned farm tutorial, players may obtain unchecked carnivorous chinchompa farm animals when checking a shaking box for a red chinchompa. If an unchecked chinchompa is found, it's automatically placed in your backpack and the following message is shown: A baby chinchompa bounds into your pack! As with all chinchompas, protean traps do not have a chance to give players this variant of the chinchompa.
Carnivorous chinchompas can be attacked and explode when killed. If the attacking player is next to the chinchompa when it explodes, they will be pushed back 1 square and dealt 20 life points of ranged damage (this cannot be mitigated by Prayer). Players hunting these chinchompas should take care, as clicking on one will cause the player to attack it. A player can avoid this entirely by equipping a Ranged or Magic weapon without ammunition, or by going to Settings -> Gameplay -> Combat & Action Bar -> Attack Options -> NPC attack option -> Right Click or Hidden.
