Vultures are large attackable birds found in the Kharidian Desert, near the Wanderer's tent north of Sophanem, and some east of Sophanem. Sometimes they fly and can only be attacked with Ranged and Magic. There are only a few vultures and they die quickly, so if you can hit 1000 or more you will often find yourself waiting for them to respawn. They drop vulture eggs, which can be incubated at a pet shop to obtain a pet vulture at level 85 Summoning. The egg can be turned into a vulatrice egg using the special move of the spirit cobra, Ophidian Incubation. There are three vultures near the wanderer's tent, and three north of the Menaphos carpet. Many players kill vultures for the vulture egg.
While they are airborne, like aviansie, they can only be attacked with magic or ranged. However, when they are grounded, they can be attacked with melee. However, a glitch sometimes causes airborne vultures to be attackable with melee, and engaging them in combat would cause them to cycle from being on the ground (during its defend and attack animations) and in the sky (at other times) rapidly.
