Black salamanders are in high demand as they are often used as a disposable weapon to augment then Disassemble to train Invention.

Hunting red salamanders is a slightly slower but lower level and safer alternative.

The Boneyard Hunter area is in level 18 - 20 Wilderness, although you risk little other than what you hunt. Most teleports will work as long as you don't go into level 21. Ring of duelling or Wilderness sword 1 or greater are recommended for quick banking. TokKul-Zo is not recommended as black salamanders will be kept over it (and its teleport has a choice interface that is interrupted by combat). To reach the area, the Lodestone Network can teleport players to south of the Wilderness Volcano without cost or requirements. Carrallanger Teleport brings you closer and is faster (takes ~30 seconds to reach the area from start of teleport, versus 1 minute) but requires 84 Magic and completion of Desert Treasure and costs 2 soul runes and 2 law runes.

There is a level 44 Hill Giant in the area that is aggressive to players under level 88. Green dragons are found slightly north, but are not aggressive. Turn left click attack off in combat options to avoid accidentally attacking any of them.

Small fishing nets and ropes are cheap but might not be always available on the Grand Exchange. Nicholas Angle's Fishing Shop (northeast of Taverley lodestone) and Shantay Pass Shop (south of broomstick teleport after exiting from fountain) are convenient sources of them respectively.

Checking a net trap requires you to have 3 inventory spaces - and black salamanders cannot be dropped, only released (and they will disappear immediately). Therefore, even if you drop your small fishing nets and ropes (recommended as they are worth much less than a black salamander), you can only carry 26 salamanders in your inventory. 1 can be wielded if you have 70 Ranged. Notice that even without harralander tar (which prevents you from attacking), if you click attack on a monster, it will become aggressive and if you do so with a player, you will be skulled despite not being able to deal any damage.
