For the hunter creature, see Baby monkey (Hunter).

A Monkey is a Summoning pet that can be obtained with level 95 Summoning and 27 Hunter (neither of the requirements can be boosted). A baby monkey can be caught using a box trap, baited with a banana, at specific locations on Karamja. Baby monkeys gain 5% hunger every 2 minutes and 1% size every 4 minutes; meaning that it takes 6 hours and 40 minutes for a baby monkey to grow into an adult. Baby monkeys and adult monkeys both eat bananas as food. It, Frosty, the TzRek-Jad, the King Black Dragonling and the Queen Black Dragonling are the only pets with a Summoning level requirement greater than 90 that can be understood without using a boost. To speak to a Monkey, the player must use an Amulet of Monkeyspeak.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!

    • Monkeys and ferrets can no longer be disassembled.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When Summoning first came out, monkeys were tradeable via the Grand Exchange. This was a bug and has now been fixed.
  • In the follower details interface, the baby chathead can be seen saying "Ooh Ooh Ah Ah!", a typical chimpanzee sound.
