‘‘No bones about it, this wolf is scary. Its menacing howl empowers its skeletal brethren when they are on the prowl.‘‘
||— Player Journal description
The Skeleton Wolf is a variant of a wolf with a skeletal texture, found only in Minecraft Earth.
Skeleton wolves are a rare mob drop found in stone tappables with a very low chance of 0.2% of obtaining it. It can also be obtained as a reward in Season 6.
Similar to wolves, skeleton wolves mostly have the same AI behavior. They wander aimlessly, avoiding lava and cliffs high enough to cause fall damage. However, they are not tameable, are hostile, and can howl. If a skeleton wolf howls, nearby skeleton-themed mobs gain a damage boost effect but the howling wolf does not affect itself, although it can be affected by another skeleton wolf. Additionally, skeleton wolves do not attack skeletons. Their melee attacks deal 4 and they sink in water, just like undead mobs.
When killed, an adult skeleton wolf drops:
- The skeleton wolf might be a reference to Grim, a skeleton dog appearing in most videos made by YouTuber DanTDM.
- In the biome category of the journal, it says that they spawn in the desert.
