Swamp spiders are poisonous arachnids located in the Poison Swamp in eastern Morytania. They do not provide any drops apart from a carcass which when cooked cannot be eaten (unlike the carcass of a jungle spider) for it is poisonous. Due to their poor drops and also their ability to hit up to 80 with poison, it is probably best to stay clear of the spiders.

Swamp spiders evolved from tiny spiders found throughout Gielinor. When Count Drakan conquered Morytania and turned all the woodlands into swamps, he spread a poisonous liquid throughout the Poison Swamp (hence the name of the location). The small spiders began to grow because of this and became poisonous. They are the more dangerous cousins of poison spiders which can be found mainly in the Wilderness.
