Trivia

  • Drowned mobs have a chance to drop a shell if they are visibly holding one in their hand beforehand, although those holding a shell may not actually drop one when killed.
  • The nautilus shell was the "secret drop" from drowned mobs, which had previously been hinted during the development of update 1.13. It is visibly held in the drowned's right hand, but such a drowned may not drop the nautilus shell.
