A player catching a penguin using a box trap.


A Penguin is a hunter creature that can be hunted in the Penguin Hunting Area after the Hunt for Red Raktuber quest. There are four ways to capture a penguin, each requiring a different hunter level.

Its a very easy to catch them, at level 60+ its very hard, to see a trap fail in catching penguins using Box traps.

When one is caught, it will turn out to be either an ordinary penguin or a KGP Agent. KGP agents can be exchanged for extra hunter experience with the PBJ Agent across the ice from the hunter area. The PBJ agent will not take ordinary penguins.

  • Captured Penguins can be High Alchemised for 24 coins, and Low Alchemised for 16 coins.

The spell doesn't consider there to be any difference in the value between a KGP Agent and an ordinary Penguin.
