Sharks are tamable hostile mobs that spawn in oceans.
Sharks spawn in ocean and deep ocean biomes that is at least 2 blocks deep and around 6-8 blocks wide/deep.
Sharks are 0.5 blocks wide and 3 blocks long at first, but can grow up to 1 block wide and 6 blocks long.
When killed, sharks drop 0-3 shark teeth (60% chance), and a 10% chance to drop an egg. Eggs can only be obtained if the difficulty is set to Easy or higher. They drop 5 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.
Sharks will attack and pursue any nearby players that are in the water, if within 16 blocks of a shark. They will also go for and attack squids. Sharks have high attack damage, and can kill an unprotected player in about three or four hits, depending on the difficulty. They will not attack on Peaceful, but will still chase you.
Sharks are fast swimmers in the water, and can easily catch up with a player.
- Due to their high attack damage, it is advised to stay out of the water when a shark is nearby, as it will turn on you for as long as you remain in water.
- If you decide to venture into water, a boat can be considered the safest option, as sharks cannot attack you if you're in a boat.
- It is recommended to either kill a shark from a distance with a bow, (particularly with the Power enchantment for increased damage), or to strike them at close range with an iron or diamond sword.
- Good armour (iron or better recommended) is recommended for protection against sharks.
A shark can be tamed by hatching a shark egg in water. In order to get a tamed shark, the egg must be hatched by placing it in a body of water, which will hatch into a friendly baby shark. Tamed sharks will not attack the player or other sharks (unless there is a glitch in some mod versions, where tamed sharks will attack you).
A tamed shark can be moved with the use of a fish net. There is no current way, however, to heal a tamed shark by "feeding" it. The only way to heal a tamed shark is to throw a splash potion of Healing or Regeneration at it.
If you cannot get a shark egg from sharks, input the following command. Be sure to have cheats enabled on your world or server.
