Monkey bones detail.png

Monkey bones are a form of bones that can be obtained by killing monkeys. They are almost identical to normal bones, but give 5 Prayer experience per bone when buried instead of the usual 4.5, and are sometimes used instead of regular bones. Monkey bones are also used in the Monkey Madness and Recipe for Disaster quests to make Monkey Greegrees.
