Baby Mobs

There are many kinds of mobs in Minecraft, among them are baby variants of the mob themselves. Baby mobs are typically identical to their adult variants, only much smaller with a similar sized head. There are passive, neutral, and hostile baby mobs. Some of them are much cuter and some of them are much more dangerous.

Behavior of Baby Mobs

Baby mobs are similar to their parents in almost every way except size. They are passive if their adult variant is passive and neutral if their adult variant is neutral. They behave similarly as well, except baby mobs will follow their adult variants around in groups. Some baby mobs are exceptions to this rule such as baby polar bears. Adult polar bears are neutral, but the baby variant is passive. The baby variant will also make a sound similar to the adult variant’s sound, just in a higher pitch.

Some baby mobs can be seen piggybacking on their adult variants. The baby zombie and the baby zombie villager can be seen riding chickens and adult zombies. Baby zombies also move much faster than their adult variants.

Adult Mob


Many baby mobs cannot be interacted with until they grow up to adults. For example, baby cows cannot be milked, baby sheep cannot be sheared, and baby chickens cannot lay eggs.

What do they eat?

If the mob can be fed to begin breeding or get healed with a certain item, the babies will eat that item and advance 10% in their growth. Baby chickens will eat seeds, baby wolves will eat any meat, and baby pigs will eat carrots, potatoes, and beetroots. Whatever the adult variant accepts as food the baby variant will as well. Most baby mobs will grow into adult variants in about twenty minutes.

No hostile mob can be fed food and their baby variants cannot be fed food either. The exception being Hoglins which are hostile, but will still accept food and can be bred. Hoglins will eat crimson fungi to enter love mode and baby Hoglins will eat crimson fungi to grow 10%. Baby zombies will never grow up to become adult zombies and cannot be fed food.


How do you summon baby mobs in Minecraft?

You can use commands to summon a specific baby mob in Minecraft. The commands are different from version to version. If you were looking to spawn a baby turtle in the Java edition the command is β€œ/summon turtle ~ ~ ~ {Age:-12000}”. For the Bedrock edition the command is β€œ/summon turtle ~ ~ ~ minecraft:entity_born”.

Do baby Zoglins grow up?

A zoglin spawns from a hoglin wandering into the overworld. Unlike every other baby mob, the baby zoglin will never grow up. This is to prevent hoglin farms from existing in the overworld.
