Duncan Geere Mojang avatar.png Spiders were added to Minecraft in late 2009, but it wasn’t until the version 1.0 pre-release, in September 2011, that it became possible to obtain their eyes. A spider, or cave spider, has the chance to drop a single spider eye when killed by the player. You can also find spider eyes in some desert temple chests, or when killing witches.
Duncan Geere[1]

A spider eye is a poisonous food and brewing item.



A spider or cave spider may drop a spider eye only when killed by the player and not upon death from environmental damage.


A witch may drop up to 6 spider eyes upon death of any nature.


Spider eyes can be found in 28.7% of desert temple chests in stacks of 1–3.


When eaten, a spider eye restores 2 (Hunger.svg) hunger points and 3.2 saturation points, giving a nourishment value of 1.6. It also applies a poison effect lasting 4 seconds to the player, causing 4 (Heart.svgHeart.svg) damage, which reduces hunger/saturation by 12 points.
