Fury shark detail.png

Fury sharks are a type of shark obtainable as a drop from lava strykewyrms and WildyWyrms. They are the third highest healing food found outside of Daemonheim behind the great gunkan and the calorie bomb (sailfish); consuming one while in combat heals 2475 life points, and eating one outside of combat heals 2800 life points. Fury sharks additionally have the ability to protect one worn item or an item in a player's inventory for up to one minute after being consumed; the effects of this are identical to that of the Protect Item prayer, and the two effects stack, increasing the maximum kept items in the wilderness to 5.

If dropped until it appears to other players on the ground, it will be seen as a regular shark.
