First appearances v3.5.0

Snakes are tamable mobs that can be found in the Overworld and the Wyvern Lair. They have various behaviours.

Spawning Edit

Natural generation Edit

Snakes spawn on opaque blocks at light levels of 9 or more with at least 2 block space above. They often spawn in groups of 4 during world generation. Snakes also spawn in the Wyvern Lair dimension.

Appearance Edit

Snakes are small, elongated, legless mobs. They are based on several real-life species; including the cobra, corn snake, rattlesnake, coral snake, and the python.

Drops Edit

Snakes will drop 0-2 eggs upon death. The name of the egg dropped depends on the type of snake. For example, if a rattlesnake drops eggs, they will be called rattlesnake eggs. They drop 1 to 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

Behavior Edit

Python attacking

A python attacking the player.

Snakes wander around aimlessly, avoiding cliffs high enough to cause fall damage, and tend to swim in water. Snakes tend to hiss occasionally. Each snake has their own behavior, and some may be harder to find than others. Snakes may be passive or hostile depending on the species.

If a player is holding a mouse near a snake and then drops it, the snake will hunt it down. They usually attack these small creatures.


There are two types of passive snakes: the dark snake and spotted snake. They will flee from the player when approached, and they won't attack you, even if attacked first.

Hostile Edit

Snake warning

An aggressive snake will lift its head up when you are near as a warning.

There are six aggressive snakes. They lift up their heads and hiss at you when a player or mouse is near them as a warning. If you move three blocks away, the snake will ignore you. However, if the player or mouse continues to remain in the range of a hostile snake, it will become aggressive and attack the player/mouse, with some species capable of poisoning you with a Poison III effect for several seconds, which can drain your health very quickly; most hostile snakes are venomous.


If a venomous snake (such as an orange snake) touches the player, they will get a Poison III for seven seconds.


A tamed snake is passive, and will never attack the player. It also won't retreat when approached. For some reason, snakes that have been tamed will still lift up their heads when you're near, but they won't attack or hiss at you.


  • Some snakes are venomous; and are capable of draining your health quickly if they poison you. Keep your distance if you provoke a venomous snake.
  • They can be easy to kill, a stone or better sword is best against them.
  • Unlike rats, attacking one snake will not provoke other snakes in the area. This can be used to make eggs easier to obtain.

Taming Edit

Snake Egg

A snake egg that was placed next to a torch, ready to hatch.

If a snake egg is placed in a well lit area, it will hatch a tamed baby snake after a certain period of time. After the egg hatches, the naming screen will then appear. A tamed snake can be picked up by right-clicking on it, and can be placed down by right-clicking again. Tamed snakes can be healed with raw rat.

As time passes, the snake will grow larger until it reaches its maximum size. Green snakes, coral snakes and spotted snakes stay rather small, but pythons and cobras can grow relatively large.

There are eight types of snakes in Mo' Creatures.
