Height: 0.3 Blocks
Occasionally when an ender pearl lands
Endermites are the smallest hostile mobs in Minecraft.
Using an ender pearl has a 5% chance of spawning an endermite.
Endermites drop 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.
Endermites will attack players within 16 blocks of them.
Endermites despawn within 2 minutes, regardless of the player's distance from the endermite, except for when they have been named with a name tag. If a mob attacks an endermite, any endermites in the area will become hostile towards that mob.[Java Edition only]
Endermites can attack endermen when spawned with a spawn egg.[Bedrock Edition only]
Endermites will take damage if walking on soul sand, because their height is less than that of a slab.
Endermites will spawn two portal particles around them.
The endermite is based on the silverfish, so they will sometimes try to enter blocks when idle, but can't.
Endermen will attempt to kill endermites, provided they were spawned from ender pearls and there is no nearby player in Survival or Adventure mode. If the player is close enough to an endermite, endermen focus on the player instead of the endermite.

Endermen are hostile to them, and they have a 15% chance to spawn when an enderman teleports (with that chance decreasing by 1 percentage point per endermite spawn) and a 5% chance to spawn when a player uses an ender pearl. At that time, endermites had a texture of a purple silverfish.|
