The dark squirrel is a pet who can be obtained by using a dark acorn, which is purchased from the Hallowed Sepulchre for 3,000 hallowed marks, on a giant squirrel, where players can then right-click "Metamorphosis" to change between the giant and dark squirrel as they so please.

On death, if a player loses their pet (as a follower or in your inventory) it will wander around for 30 seconds before disappearing completely.

Players can pay a one-time fee of 500,000 coins to Probita in East Ardougne to have this pet insured. Should the pet be lost while insured, it can be reclaimed for 1,000,000 coins.
