Ants are very small passive mobs.


Natural generation

Ants spawn in groups of 4 on top of opaque blocks with at least 2 blocks of space above them, at a light level of 9 or higher.


Ants do not drop anything when killed, unless they were carrying a food item at the time, in which case they will drop it. They drop 1–3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.


Ants are passive mobs, and will wander around aimlessly, avoiding cliffs and water. Ants show very similar characteristics to several mobs, including other insects, such as being able to climb up solid blocks, but their height is less than that of a slab. Because of this, they take suffocation damage from standing on soul sand or end portal frames.

Ants will pick up any floating food item, such as cookies, wheat, or apples. They are able to carry an entire stack of items. When carrying a food item, they tend to walk slower than usual. The player can retrieve the item(s) as if it was on the ground by walking over the ant or by killing it. Ants will also pick up Mo' Creatures food items, such as raw turkey or turtle soup.
