Usable items

A frog is a passive mob found in swamps. Frogs eat small slimes and magma cubes. A frog can produce one of three kinds of froglights from eating magma cubes, depending on the kind of frog.

Spawning

Groups of two to five frogs can spawn in swamp and mangrove swamp biomes. Frogs can also be spawned by growing from tadpoles. There are three frog variants, determined by the biome in which the tadpole grew up[more information needed]:

Drops

In Java Edition, frogs have no drops other than 1-3 experience points when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

Behavior

Frogs can jump 8 blocks high and take 10♥♥♥♥♥ less damage from falling than most other mobs. Frogs prefer jumping on lily pads and big dripleaves. Frogs can’t jump on honey blocks.

Occasionally they may croak and inflate their vocal sac.

Breeding

Feeding two frogs a slimeball causes them to enter love mode, causing one of the frogs to become pregnant, similar to turtles. The pregnant frog then searches for a water tile with air above to lay frogspawn. This spawn later hatches into tadpole, which subsequently grow into frogs.

Unlike all other mobs with baby variants, the tadpole is treated by the game as a completely different mob from the frog.

Attacking

Frogs attack by using their tongue to pull certain mobs into their mouth, whereupon the mob instantly despawns.

Frogs attack small slimes, which drop slimeballs when killed.

Frogs also attack small magma cubes, leaving a froglight block. The color of froglight that drops depends on the type of frog that attacks the magma cube:

Frog type Froglight color
Warm Pearlescent
Temperate Ochre
Cold Verdant

Trivia

  • The warm frog is based on the grey foam-nest tree frog, a real-life species of frog native to Africa.[1]
  • The temperate frog is based on brown bullfrogs.[2][3]
  • Despite the fact that swamps lost the Biome Vote in MINECON Live 2019 taking second place, frogs were implemented in the game three years later in Bedrock Edition and Java Edition.
  • Frogs were shown in Minecraft Live 2021 to enjoy jumping on big dripleaves.
  • Originally, frogs could eat fireflies, but this changed, as in real life fireflies are poisonous to frogs. Instead, now they can eat small slimes and small magma cubes.[4]
  • At one point in Bedrock Edition's development, in beta 1.18.10.26, frogs can eat goats. However, it was later removed as it was a leftover prototype code.[5]
