Spawning[edit | edit source]
Drops[edit | edit source]
Bats do not drop any items or experience when killed.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Bats are very small, being less than half a block tall and wide. They will randomly squeak. They often fly around aimlessly, tending to favor the east, and will sometimes fly into lava and catch on fire.
Bats also will often hang upside down on the underside of a solid block when idle, though they cannot hang on transparent or non-solid blocks. If a player approaches it while hanging upside down, including if the player is invisible, they start to fly away from the player.
Data values[edit | edit source]
