The Giant Mole (Talpidae wysonian) is a boss found in the Falador Mole Lair, just under Falador Park. The Giant Mole's origin and creation are described as "a slight accident involving a bottle of Malignius-Mortifer's-Super-Ultra-Flora-Growth-Potion".

The Giant Mole is located in the tunnels beneath Falador Park. A spade is required to enter its lair. A light source is also needed to be able to see in the dark tunnels. A bullseye lantern is highly recommended, as any light source that is not protected will extinguish, and the candle lantern will rarely break, with the candle disappearing, if he retreats within melee range. If you are using an unprotected light source such as a candle, you will need a tinderbox to reignite it. If you have achieved 99 Firemaking, you can also bring the Firemaking Skillcape either equipped or in your inventory, as it will act as a lightsource that cannot extinguish.

When using the Serpentine helm or other venomous weapons, the mole will have a chance to be inflicted with regular poison. The Giant Mole cannot be inflicted with venom.

The most common method of killing the Giant Mole is with Dharok the Wretched's equipment and 1 health (often achieved by guzzling a Dwarven rock cake), as well as having the Protect from Melee prayer active to avoid taking any damage. This results in higher hits that decrease the time it takes to kill it significantly.

The alternative to this low health method, for those uncomfortable with combat at low health (e.g. Hardcore Ironman), is using your best Strength bonus melee gear, or best-in-slot ranged gear with a Twisted bow.

Having the Falador Hard Diary completed is recommended, as it will provide you with the Falador shield 3. This shield will also work as a locator to the mole's whereabouts by a flashing red arrow on the minimap as long it is alive. The Falador Hard Diary reward will also make the mole claws and mole skins to be dropped in noted form.

The Giant Mole occasionally (under 100 health) digs himself underground, to resurface elsewhere within the lair. Since you will be running a lot, it is highly recommended to bring a fair amount of Stamina or energy potions.

Its respawn time is 10 seconds.
