Description At the Ardougne Zoo, one of the zookeepers has become a bit preoccupied by penguins. In fact he's downright paranoid about them. He needs your help to observe their habits on the iceberg in the Lunar Sea.

Agility CourseEdit

If you run out of food any time and do not wish to risk losing your items, you could un-equip the penguin suit, resulting in being caught and stunned, but otherwise returned to where Larry is on the Iceberg.

  1. Climb down the steps and into the water.
  2. Avoid the moving ice in the water.
  3. Climb the stepping stone at the end.
  4. Jump across the next stones reach an ice platform.
  5. After you manage to cross, continue on the path until you come to a shelf with icicles on it. Use the tread softly option to get across. You have to repeat this several times at each shelf. If you fail, you will be hit taking a small amount of damage.
  6. Next, you have to climb up the ice using a 'Cross Ice' option. This can be very annoying, as you lose 2 hitpoints each time you fail, and the failure rate is surprisingly high. If you have only the minimal agility — level 30, for example — a small amount of food may help.
  7. After that, you have a small cutscene of you sliding down a hill.
  • Talk to Agility Instructor.
  • Unequip the penguin suit and talk to Larry.
