The Head of a swamp creature is fought on a boat ride during the Temple Trekking minigame. It is located in a multi-combat zone with four tentacles. The parts attack only with melee, so Protect from Melee is recommended.
The head can only be defeated when the four level 99 tentacles are killed. The head can hit up to 20 hitpoints, and the tentacles can hit up to 12 hitpoints each.
One strategy to kill this multi-part monster is to use Protect from Melee and kill the tentacle closest to the follower. When that is dead, the follower should be a little safer.
Kill the other tentacles in order from the distance from the follower, closest to farthest. Poisoning a tentacle works well as the poison damages all four tentacles as well as the head.
If the head is near death and a tentacle is still alive, it will return to full health. When the tentacles are dead, the head should not be much of a problem.
