What do Foxes do in Minecraft
Minecraft foxes are quick creatures that usually flee from players and wolves. The only chance of getting close to them is by sneaking. Foxes attack chickens, rabbits, salmons, cod, and tropical fish by pouncing or running up the target. The indication that a fox is about to pounce is when it starts to tilt, lowering its head and body to make an illusion of becoming shorter.
They can also jump over fences and walls. Tamed foxes will give things they pick up by their mouths in-game to their trusted player consisting mostly of feathers, still, there is a chance to get cool items out of them. Loyal foxes also help fend off potentially harmful enemies that may cause harm to their masters.
Types of Foxes in Minecraft
Foxes are one of the most adorable critters you can find in Minecraft. They are usually passive in nature yet possess certain unique behaviors making them a must-have addition to the expansion of wildlife in-game. Minecraft Foxes come in two distinct types. The taiga biomes with no snow and ice spawn foxes with classic russets and colored red and white while on the other hand, foxes spawning near snow taiga homes or are surrounded by abundant snow will yield a fox with white and grey fur just like arctic foxes.
How to Tame a Fox in Minecraft
Initially, foxes are a bit wary and always scampers away when players go near them. The only way to get up close to these critters is to actually sneak upon them as they tend to be shy animals. The trick to bridging the gap with foxes is to develop a close bond by using sweet berries.
In order to tame Minecraft foxes, you need to be able to make two foxes mate with one another. Initial steps include finding a pair of foxes and convincing them to breed.
Step 1: So the first step can be done by giving one sweet berry to one fox (which they are really fond of!) and likewise giving the other fox a sweet berry in the hopes to convince them to mate with each other and procreate. Little hearts that blooms above the fox’s heads is an indication that they have received your gift. But be vigilant since it usually takes a couple of attempts (usually four tries) before taming a Minecraft fox.
Step 2: Once both foxes agree to mate, players have to wait for the tamed fox pair to breed and produce a freshly-hatched fox which is by default tame and would be loyal to you. You must have a lead handy since they are prone to follow nearby adult foxes.
