Mushroom Island biomes
Kill Adult: 1–3
Mooshrooms are unique variations of cows.
If a pair of mooshrooms are given wheat, they will breed. A mooshroom cannot be bred with a cow, even one that used to be a mooshroom.
Feeding wheat to a baby mooshroom will speed up its growing time by 10% of the remaining time.
Baby mooshrooms do not have mushrooms on their backs, but they will appear once it is fully grown.
Mooshrooms drop 0–2 leather and 1–3 raw beef (1–3 steak if killed while on fire). Shearing one will drop 5 red mushrooms and turn the mooshroom into a normal cow, emitting an explosion particle. When you shear the mooshroom cow, the mushrooms can't grow back. Mooshrooms also drop 1–3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.
Like other baby animals, killing a baby mooshroom yields no items, nor experience.
Mooshrooms tend to walk around slowly and aimlessly, huffing and mooing occasionally. They will avoid danger such as cliffs, fire or lava, but will make no attempt to stay out of water.
A mooshroom will follow players holding wheat.

|1.0.0||Beta 1.9 Prerelease||Mooshrooms were added.|
|They could not be milked with a bucket like regular cows can. Right clicking on a mooshroom with more than one bowl equipped would turn the whole stack into just one bowl of mushroom stew.|
|Beta 1.9 Prerelease 2||Breeding a cow with a mooshroom may result in either, chosen randomly. The offspring may be more likely to be the kind you gave wheat to first, similarly to sheep.|
|Beta 1.9 Prerelease 3||The mooshroom's horns are moved.|
|The mooshroom udder's model is changed, but the texture isn't changed to match the new model, resulting in the broken udder glitch|

Issues relating to "Mooshroom" are maintained on the issue tracker. Report issues there.
- The name "Mooshroom" is a portmanteau for "moo" (which itself is an onomatopoeia of a cow's sound) and "mushroom".
- In Console Edition, mooshroms and cows have different spawn limits. This means if the player has reached their cow limit, they cannot shear a mooshroom, and will get a error message when trying.
- Curiously, they do not have a brown mushroom variant. Though this variation has been added in many mods and addons, it has never been mentioned by Mojang.
