Pet Amulet


A pet amulet with a tamed panda inside.

A pet amulet can be used to keep a tamed mob stored for infinite use until it is released from the amulet again. If a pet amulet containing a stored mob is destroyed (e.g. thrown into lava or fire), the mob will be lost. To store a mob inside the amulet, right-click on the mob with the amulet on it. The mob inside can be released by right-clicking again. Pet amulets do not work on aquatic mobs.

A pet amulet can also be given to another player. If he/she opens the pet amulet that has been given to them by another player, they will receive ownership of that mob inside. However, this also allows players to take your pets without permission if they take the amulet from you, or if they steal them from a chest, so keep your amulets hidden if you can't risk to lose them.

Pet amulets can catch horses, but not special horses such as fairy horses. However, they still work on horses that cannot be caught with other amulets.

  • DrZhark originally added pet amulets so players could move their animals from Minecraft 1.5.2 to 1.6.2. Without doing so, updating to 1.6.2 would have removed all of the tamed mobs in a player's world.
  • Pet amulets can store more creatures than all the other four amulets.
  • If an undead horse, unicorn or pegasus is released from a pet amulet, green particles will appear instead of the usual yellow particles, which show when a normal horse has been released from the amulet.
  • As with all items in Minecraft, you can use the middle-click button on your mouse to duplicate a pet amulet with a mob inside to duplicate your pets, if desired. Note that this only works in Creative mode.
