Minecraft Sniffer Spawn Location
The only way to spawn Sniffer in Minecraft is by using sniffer eggs which can be found in warm ocean ruins. But when you go down in the ocean seeking the eggs you need to be prepared as you might face a large number of drowned waiting to attack you. Using a potion of water breathing might help you as you’ll be able to stay underwater for longer.
We hope that now you have a better idea about where you can find Sinffer in Minecraft now we will discuss how you can extract the Sniffer from the egg down below.
How to extract sniffer?
You’ll need to craft a Brush tool in order to uncover the eggs. Once you go down in the ocean you’ll need to find the suspicious sand. Suspicious sand is really easy to find it looks just like regular sand but the texture is a bit different.
Once you find the suspicious sand, you can start extracting items from it and there is a 6% chance of you getting sniffer eggs while extracting items from the sand. Once you get two sniffer eggs then you are good to go. If you wanna know how to grow crops in Minecraft then you can check out the Minecraft Crop Farming Guide.
How to breed Sniffers?
To breed Sniffers from eggs just simply pace the eggs anywhere and they will hatch after twenty minutes but if you guys wanna speed up the process then simply just place the eggs on a moss block and they will hatch in ten minutes. You would be able to notice some cracks when the eggs would be close to hatching.
Once the eggs have hatched then you’ll have spawned a baby sniffer which is also known as a snifflet. These small snifflets will grow into an adult in twenty minutes but you can again speed up the process by feeding them some torchflower seeds and once two snifflets have grown into an adult then you can breed them like most of the mobs. You can feed torchwood flower to both the sniffers and have them lay sniffer eggs.
Torchflower seeds are one of the rarest items in Minecraft and you can have your Sniffer dig them up for you. There’s a 50% chance of your Sniffer digging torchflower seeds and they will dig for seeds every eight minutes. We will list down the blocks on which Sniffers are able to dig for seeds
