Spitting wyverns are Slayer monsters that require a Slayer level of 66 in order to be harmed. They reside in the Wyvern Cave on Fossil Island and are the weakest of the Fossil Island wyverns. Like with other Wyverns, an elemental, mind, dragonfire ward, dragonfire or ancient wyvern shield (not including Anti-dragon Shield) provides significant protection against their icy breath. These monsters require completion of the Bone Voyage quest to be assigned as a Slayer task. Additionally, players can benefit from using dragonbane weapons to deal additional damage per second.
Unlike their skeletal variant, spitting wyverns can use their icy breath from any distance. They will use Ranged when attacking from a distance, and will not try to use melee unless the target is in melee range. Their Ranged attack is weak; however, it may hit the player multiple times if it is a successful hit.

The task-only cave entrance is a trapdoor in the Mushroom Forest and the regular cave entrance is south of the Museum Camp. When a player attempts to attack wyverns in the slayer task area without a Fossil Island wyvern Slayer task, Weve (Steve's son) will stop them from doing so.
Wyverns often use the icy breath attack dealing large damage and reducing stats if a protective shield is not equipped. An Elemental Shield, Mind Shield, Dragonfire Shield, Dragonfire Ward, or Ancient Wyvern Shield must be equipped in order to fight them.
The Anti-dragon shield, Protect from Magic prayer, and antifire potions cannot be used as a substitute for the shields. As such, using two-handed weapons such as the Toxic Blowpipe or Abyssal Bludgeon is highly discouraged.
Despite offering protection from the icy breath effect, only the Ancient wyvern shield provides complete protection, preventing the accompanying freeze effect, which prevents attacking and movement. The Elemental Shield, Mind Shield, Dragonfire Shield, Dragonfire Ward will only prevent the damage and stat reductions.
Wyverns may drop Fossil Island fossils of various sizes. Both caves have a Fossil Storage box by their respective entrances.
Attacks with melee, ranged, and Icy breath, but seeing as the ranged attack is not typeless and can be prayed against, it makes it more favorable to kill over taloned wyverns, and deal relatively lower damage. Requires level 66 slayer to kill.
