Gold skulltulas are also known as spiders of the curse and are hidden all throughout Hyrule and are known to curse people. One family was once fabulously rich, but were cursed due to their greed and have taken the form of skulltulas. Gold skulltulas can be located by listening for their distinctive scraping sound. They can be found from fields to dungeons, although they will only appear above ground during the night. Gold skulltulas like soft soil, and can be drawn out by baiting them with bugs. They can also be found inside crates, pots, and beehives.
