The Giant Mole (Talpidae wysonian) is a female mole found in the Falador Mole Lair, just under Falador Park. Upon release, on 7 March 2006, "a slight accident involving a bottle of Malignius-Mortifer's-Super-Ultra-Flora-Growth-Potion" is the origin of the creation of the Giant Mole.

Players will need a light source to access the location. Players are advised to be careful while fighting this monster as she may put out their light source. A seer's headband or bullseye lantern is strongly recommended, however a lantern with a tinderbox can also be used. To get into its lair you have to dig in any one of the 'mole hills' near Sir Tiffy Cashien in the Falador Park.

When low on health, the mole will dig and reappear elsewhere within her cavern, making the fight potentially time-consuming.

Players often kill the mole for her mole claws and mole skin, each of which Wyson the gardener will exchange for bird's nests, an item that is used in the Herblore skill.

Fight info

The giant mole is weak against water based spells and is also vulnerable to poison. The mole, when poisoned, will surface to die and leave her drops so there is no risk of missing out on a drop. Sometimes when the mole digs it throws up balls of mud. The direction these go has nothing to do with the direction it will appear at when it surfaces.

Despite the mole's high combat level, she is unaggressive, so if you are a lower level and are unsure about fighting her, you can feel free to observe other players fighting her. 

It will be easier to bring a familiar to fight her, because after the mole has dived away, your familiar will look in her direction, so it would speed up finding her. 

Later on, when the mole is low on life points, she runs away a lot (see below). The mole always turns to where it goes then burrows, e.g. when a player is fighting it and it turns west and disappears, it most likely went west. However if there is no space in that direction, because it's at the edge of the burrow, it will be found in the opposite direction instead. Players are able to locate the mole easily with the Falador Shield 4, rewarded from the Falador Elite Tasks.

When the Giant Mole makes an escape, her animation hides the appearance of the mole until her dig-from-ground animation is played. The mole dust cloud and escape animation are played. Four game ticks pass then the mole's location changes and plays her dig-from-ground animation.

Drops

The Giant Mole's drops are fairly similar to that of the King Black Dragon, although she does not drop the draconic visage, dragon bones, or black dragonhide. Also, the King Black Dragon drops 4 charms at a time as opposed to the Giant Mole's 2.
