Herbiboars are creatures native to the Mushroom Forest in Fossil island, with herbs growing on their back. To track them, players will require level 80 Hunter and 31 Herblore to harvest their herbs. Note that you can use hunter potions to boost from 77, or a stew from 75, to start the tracking by inspecting a rock, after which you do not have to keep your hunter at 80 in order to inspect other objects or harvest the herbiboar's herbs. Doing so will gain you decreased xp as it scales from your hunter level.

Tracking a herbiboar starts by inspecting the rock, mushroom, or log next to the hunter icon on the minimap. Tracking the creatures involves inspecting rocks, seaweed, muddy patches, and mushrooms around the area to find tracks, each inspection earning 50 Hunter xp, and occasionally giving numulite and/or unidentified fossils. By following the tracks more objects can be inspected to eventually reveal a tunnel containing a herbiboar. A ring of pursuit cannot be used to track herbiboars. On rare occasions, the player may fail to track it down. When this occurs, a message will appear in the chatbox, stating The creature has successfully confused you with its tracks, leading you round in circles. You'll need to start again.

Once the player attacks the tunnel, Hunter xp is earned and herbs can be harvested from the creature. It should be noted that the 1,950 xp is the base value and scales with level, about 30 additional experience gained per level above level 80 Hunter.

Harvesting herbiboar

A player harvests the herbs from a herbiboar.

Harvesting the herbiboar earns Herblore xp, the amount depending upon the amount of herbs collected. There is a chance to obtain the Herbi pet when a player harvests the creature. Wielding magic secateurs yields more/better quality herbs while harvesting the herbiboar. A farming cape will not work when harvesting the herbiboar.

Players can track how many herbiboars they have harvested by right-clicking Check count on an inspect-able rock.
