Turtles are passive mobs that can be tamed by the player.

Spawning Edit

Natural generation Edit

Turtles spawn on grass blocks at light levels of 9 or more with at least 2 block space above in swamps. They often spawn in groups of 4 during world generation.

Appearance Edit

Turtles are small mobs that are mostly green in color, and are covered with a large shell. A turtle that has been named after one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters will don a headband and carry a weapon on top of their shell (they never use this weapon, however).

Drops Edit

When killed, turtles drop 0 to 2 pieces of raw turtle meat. They drop 1 to 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

If a turtle has been named after one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters, they will drop a specific weapon when killed:

  • Turtle was named Leonardo: Drops a katana.
  • Turtle was named Donatello: Drops a bo.
  • Turtle was named Michelangelo: Drops a nunchaku.
  • Turtle was named Raphael: Drops a sai.

Behavior Edit

Turtle flipped over

A turtle that was flipped onto its back. Turtles are vulnerable to attacks when they are like this.

Turtles act like most passive mobs; they wander around aimlessly, avoiding cliffs high enough to cause fall damage, and usually stay out of water (although they can swim in it). Turtles will hiss and retreat into their shells when any entity approaches (including kitty beds or litter boxes), including the player.

Wild turtles can be flipped onto their back by right-clicking on them, and it takes several attempts for them to flip themselves back over. You can help the turtle flip back by right click it one more time. When a turtle has taken damage, a 'clang' sound can be heard, similar to an anvil placing sound. Turtles are resistant to most attacks if its inside it's shell, so you have to flip it and then hit it afterwards.

Usage Edit

Taming and growthEdit

Turtle on player's head

A fully grown turtle on a player's head.

A turtle can be tamed by dropping (default control is 'Q') sugar canes or melon next to a turtle. The item has to dropped on the block the turtle is hiding on. You have to then back a few blocks away from the turtle so it can eat the item(s). After it has done so, the naming screen will appear.

Tamed turtles can be healed by feeding them sugar canes or melons.

A tamed turtle can be placed on your head by right-clicking on it. Turtles on the ground will follow the player regardless of what is in hand. One must be careful when owning a turtle, as it may be vulnerable to attacks by untamed scorpions or other mobs.

Once tamed, turtles will automatically grow, regardless of where they are or what they are fed. They can even be left in a cave, alone with no food, and will still grow.

Easter egg Edit

If a tamed turtle has been named after any of the four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle characters, (Leonardo - blue, Michelangelo - orange, Donatello - purple, Raphael - red) they will bear outfits and weapons reminiscent of the ninja turtles from the comics.

Trivia Edit

  • If a turtle is swimming, it does not hide inside its shell if a player approaches them.
  • Turtles are tamed in a similar manner to birds; by throwing a food near them and waiting for them to eat it.
  • Even if a turtle has grown to its maximum size, it can still be placed on the player's head. In real life, this would be impossible due to its weight.
  • At full size, turtles are one of the largest passive mobs in Mo' Creatures.
  • Like tamed bunnies and birds, riding a horse with a tamed turtle on your head will give the horse a power-charge. This does however, make the horse very hard to control.
