The orange salamander is a salamander that players can capture with the Hunter skill at level 47 or above, granting 224 Hunter experience. Catching one is a requirement for the Medium Desert Diary.
The chance of a successful catch is approximately 56% beginning at level 47, and 100% after level 88.
The hunting technique is the same as for other salamanders. Players must bring a rope and small fishing net for each net trap they plan to set up. Clicking on a young tree will set the trap. Players can use the same rope and net over and over to catch multiple creatures.
Net trapping can be done with multiple traps at once, with the maximum amount of traps depending on the player's Hunter level.
The orange salamander is a two handed weapon. It requires a level of 50 Ranged, Magic and Attack to wield. To be operated, the orange salamander requires its requisite fuel, marrentill tar.
