| Spawn Egg|
A spawn egg is an item used to spawn mobs directly.
Spawn eggs are not obtainable in Survival mode. In Creative mode, the player can press the pick-block button (middle-click) on an existing mob to obtain their respective egg. Spawn eggs are also available in the Creative inventory. There are 78 eggs available in the Mo' Creatures mod.
Spawn eggs can be obtained by ops using the /give command.
A spawn egg is used by pressing right-click on any surface (top, bottom or side) with the egg. When used on a top surface, the egg's mob will appear with its feet immediately adjacent to the surface. The egg will be consumed in the process in Survival mode, but will not be consumed in Creative mode.
Spawn eggs are not thrown or placed (unlike Mo' Creatures eggs); the player must be within normal range of the block to use the spawn egg. Hostile and neutral mobs (except Komodo dragons, crocodiles, goats, raccoons, boars, foxes, ostriches, sharks, piranhas, grizzly bears, polar bears, black bears, big cats and wyverns) spawned while on Peaceful difficulty will be created but then instantly deleted from the world.
A spawn egg fired from a dispenser will spawn the mob directly in front of the dispenser.
Spawn eggs can be renamed on an anvil, and when used will spawn mobs with that name appearing over their head. Their names can only be seen if they are aimed at from four or fewer blocks away. This name will also appear in death messages from the mob killing a player.
