Boars are common neutral mobs.

Spawning Edit

Boars are about 1 block tall.

Boars spawn on grass blocks at light levels of 9 or more. Herds of boars spawn upon natural generation, and piglets may also spawn.

Drops Edit

Boars drop 0–2 pieces of raw porkchops and 0-2 hide upon death. The porkchops will be raw even if the boar was set alight and killed. Piglets will also drop porkchops and hide. Boars also drop 1–3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

Behavior Edit

Boars typically roam the Overworld in groups of 4.

Boars act similarly to passive mobs; they wander aimlessly, avoiding falling off cliffs high enough to cause fall damage, and will usually stay out of water. Boars can be heard oinking occasionally. If a boar is provoked, or if the player gets too close to it, the boar will give chase and attack the player. Piglets will also attack the player if provoked.

Boars attack small mobs occasionally, such as foxes, raccoons, insects or turkeys. Like other baby animals, boar piglets will follow adults and eventually grow into adult boars. Boars cannot be bred, unlike pigs.
