The Shaikahan is a lion-like creature which prowls the eastern jungle of Karamja and is involved in the Tai Bwo Wannai Trioquest. It can be killed after completing the quest via poison, dreadnips, or a Ring of Recoil. The ring, poison or dreadnips are the only way to damage the Shaikahan before and after the quest is complete. It has a unique drop of Shaikahan bones, which give 25 Prayer experience when buried.
In the Monkey Madness quest, a monkey that the player rescues from the Ardougne Zoo occasionally has a nightmare with the Shaikahan.
Before completing the Tai Bwo Wannai Trio quest, you could kill the Shaikahan with a poisoned weapon. Despite the fact you hit 0's, you would poison him and he would eventually succumb to the poison and die.
The Shaikahan received a graphical update on 25 May2011.
The Shaikahan (along with the Saradominist bodyguard Growler ) is the only known lion-like monster in RuneScape.
The Shaikahan does not appear on the minimap.
The Shaikahan has two tails. However, before a graphical update, The Shaikahan only had one tail.
The Shaikahan was previously vulnerable to Karambwan poisoned spears. But since the Evolution of Combat update, these cannot be equipped.
