A black salamander is a creature that can be caught using the Hunter skill once a player has reached level 67 in hunting. The black salamander hunting area is located in the Wilderness, northeast of the southern Chaos Temple and east of the Bone Yard. When caught, it becomes a black salamander weapon. To trap a black salamander use a small fishing net and rope on a young tree. Harralander tar may used to bait the trap and a lit torch may be used on it to reduce your scent, slightly increasing your chance of catching a salamander.
Catching a black salamander is a requirement for the Wilderness Tasks.
