Enemies to defeat


To complete this subquest, you need to make three monkey greegrees to transform into three monkeys. Remember what Zooknock told you at the end of Monkey Madness: you create greegrees by bringing him the bones of the type of monkey you want to become and a monkey talisman. He is located at the very end of the Ape Atoll Dungeon.

You need the bones of:

Inspect the monkey kingEdit

Awowogei location

Location of Awowogei's palace.

Inspect Awowogei in the banquet hall in Lumbridge Castle. Gypsy Aris will say you need to feed the monkey king his favourite dish. She, however, is not sure what his favourite dish is and suggests you ask him on Ape Atoll.

Go to Awowogei's palace in Marim on Ape Atoll. Make sure you have equipped one of your monkey greegrees and your monkeyspeak amulet. Talk to the Elder Guard blocking the entrance to let you through. Talk with Awowogei about his favourite dish, and he will tell you he cannot let you have sensitive information like that. But he will mention three monkeys.

You will find the trio (Mizaru, Kikazaru, and Iwazaru) in the Temple of Marimbo north of the palace. Talk to the three monkeys in the north-west part of the temple. After a bit of conversation, you tell Mizaru that you are planning a surprise party for the king. Mizaru will then tell you to stuff the corpse of a big snake with banana slices and monkey nut paste. Do not slice the banana yet though.

Go to Solihib's Food Stall west of the temple. Buy a banana for 2 coins (or pick it from a banana tree) and monkey nuts for 3 coins from Solihib. Return to the three monkeys, and talk to them. Iwazaru will indicate that you have the wrong type of banana. They will say you need a red banana, found on the west side of the island.

Talk to them again. Iwazaru will now indicate that you have the wrong kind of monkey nuts. They will tell you to find tchiki monkey nuts on the tchiki nut bush in a cave in the hills south of the village.

Pick the red bananaEdit


Getting the banana.

Red banana

To get the red banana, wield your gorilla greegree and make sure you have your rope. Then head west to the water's edge and find the red banana tree. This tree is directly west of the village, north of a pineapple plant. The leaves of the tree have a red-brown edge.

Use your rope on the tree to get the banana. If you forgot a rope, Ifaba's general store in the middle of the village sells them. Sometimes the tree will not have any bananas left on it, so wait until you see that the bananas have grown on the tree.

Collect one, slice it, and then collect another (you can only collect one red banana at a time, so using the drop trick then slicing it is optional). It is a good idea to collect at least a third one, as there is a possibility of burning the stuffed snake, thus requiring another banana. Slice all but one of the bananas.

Run back to the three monkeys, drop all of your sliced bananas and talk to them. Mizaru will take the whole banana and all but 1 of your sliced bananas and eat them (or the 1 sliced banana you have in inventory), so make sure you drop the other slices you may have collected before talking to them. Talk to them again about the tchiki nut bush.

Gather the tchiki monkey nutsEdit


The tchiki nuts bush

Tchiki monkey nuts

They will tell you that you need to go south of the island to get to the tchiki nut bush. When you do this, you will get a message saying, "There are no nuts on the bush right now." To avoid this, you need to buy the monkey nuts from Solihib's Food Stall just west of the Temple of Marimbo. When you confront them with the monkey nuts in your inventory, they say that you specifically need tchiki monkey nuts. After speaking with them, you can obtain the tchiki monkey nuts without any interruption and they will be there this time.

To do this, wield your ninja greegree, go to the south part of village, and enter the Ape Atoll Agility Course. Go across the obstacles until you find a hole (it is just after the rope swing). If you haven't already done so, you might want to unblock the log after the skull slope (for future, easier access to Ape Atoll via fairy rings).

Enter the hole and pick a monkey nut from the bush. Grind it with your pestle and mortar and then collect another nut (you can only collect one monkey nut at a time, so using the drop trick and then grinding it is optional). It is a good idea to collect at least a third one, as there is a possibility of burning the stuffed snake, thus requiring another nut. If a third one is picked, make sure that all but one of the nuts are ground.

Climb up the rope to exit the cavern, and climb down the tropical tree to complete the course. Run back to the three monkeys and talk to them. Mizaru will take the nut and eat it, ground or not. Talk to them about the giant snake.

Kill the giant snakeEdit

Snake pit

The snake pit.

Travel back to Crash Island, and go east from Lumdo to find a pit. Before climbing down into the pit, turn on the Protect from Melee prayer, as the five level 64 Big Snakes will drain your life points quickly and poison you.

Enter the pit, and kill one of the big snakes to get a snake corpse. Make sure that you stay away from the walls as more snakes will pop out of the walls to attack you. You may want to get more than one snake corpse, in case you burn the raw stuffed snake. Climb back up the rope in the centre of the pit to escape.

Prepare the dishEdit


Cooking the snake.

Items recommended: Cooking gauntlets, a second greegree (as a zombie monkey, you will not be able to run), cooking boosts if you require them

Use the slices and paste on the corpse to create a raw stuffed snake. Go back to Ape Atoll (if you have not already), and talk to the three monkeys in the Temple of Marimbo. Iwazaru indicates you need to enter the dungeon below the temple to cook the stuffed snake.

Climb down the trapdoor in the east of the temple to enter the dungeon. Walk down a wooden platform, and look for a crack in the wall just below the climbing rope between the two flights of stairs in the east wall (it will say Enter Exit). Squeeze through the gap (you will need your zombie greegree to walk across the hot coals) and then cook the raw stuffed snake on the long, hot rock to make stuffed snake. If you fail cooking this, you will receive a snake over-cooked. As such, it is advised to make multiple raw stuffed snakes.

Then with the cooked stuffed snake, go back to Lumbridge Castle and save King Awowogei. Take caution not to eat the snake accidentally. (Equip your amulet of monkeyspeak beforehand.) You will have a funny conversation forcing Awowogei to teach you the spell for teleporting to Ape Atoll.

Congratulations, subquest complete!
