Examine A Taller than normal skeleton

Skeletons are monsters which reside throughout Gielinor in RuneScape Classic. They can easily kill an unsuspecting player that wanders through the wrong section of the Wilderness or into the Taverley dungeon. They are the first monster encountered when a player enters the Taverley dungeon. While skeletons can be dangerous (and even lethal) to low-level players, many medium and high-level players train on skeletons with ease.

A skeleton will also attack the player during The Restless Ghost quest.
