Bats are flying passive mobs that spawn in caves.
Spawning[edit | edit source]
Drops[edit | edit source]
Bats do not drop any items or experience when killed.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Bats sleep during the day and become active at night. A bat will hang upside down on the underside of any solid block when it is idle, but once the player approaches, the bat will fly away. Bats cannot hang on transparent or non-solid blocks.
Bats are the 4th smallest mobs in the game.
Bats will squeak (similar to their real life function of echolocation).
Bats do not recognize lava as obstruction and can fly into it and catch on fire.
Bats can detect players even when they are invisible.
