The black unicorn is a slightly more dangerous version of the Unicorn. These creatures are aggressive to all level players when in the Wilderness, but are low-levelled, so they won't affect high levelled players much. They are a very easy way to obtain Unicorn horns in decent quantities, as they are present in greater numbers than basic unicorns (though upon completion the achievement in the Fremennik area a message box appears saying "endangered species"). They also have have a faster spawn rate and tend to walk around quite a bit in their area, and will sometimes run away when their health is low. Their attack consists of what looks to be a Fire Blast shooting from their horn. There is usually a small number of black unicorn foals mixed into the herd. The foals rarely drop unicorn horns.
The black unicorn hide from Fur 'n' Seek is dropped by this creature. During the quest, it must be collected by killing these creatures until one drops the item, then cleaned and brought to the Odd Old Man.
Hunting these creatures for their horns is a fairly popular activity.
