A Turtle is an underwater passive Mob added to Minecraft in 1.13 - The Update Aquatic. Turtles lay Turtle Eggs in different biomes which can hatch to produce additional turtles. Turtles can be bred with Seagrass, and after two turtles are given seagrass, one of them will go and burrow sand around itself and lay 1-4 eggs. After a few minutes, the eggs will emit a cracking sound and hatch into baby turtles.
Baby turtles will be attacked by monsters such as zombies and skeletons. Baby turtles will drop Scutes when grown into an adult. It takes 5 turtle scutes to craft turtle shells which will give the wearer water breathing.
- These mobs will spawn at warm beaches. These mobs are currently the only mobs that can "breed a block" in Minecraft.
- Once a turtle egg is laid, mobs like Zombies and Husks will try to destroy them, so players will have to guard them for a few days.
- Once hatched, mobs like Skeletons will try to kill them, even though they have a tough time just scoring a single shot. Wild Wolves, Ocelots, and zombies will also try to kill the baby turtles.
- After a turtle lays its eggs, players will be able breed the turtle again.
- Unlike other animals, turtles have a very different breeding cooldown.
- Turtles, unlike other passive mobs (except fish), are water friendly.
- As of the 1.13 update, baby turtles are now the smallest mob in the game, being a little less than half the size of an endermite, the previous holder of that tidal.
- Players can also break turtle eggs.
