Creatures and Beasts Mod

Creatures and Beasts will add some new mobs into Minecraft. Some of these will be small and passive, while others might be big and hostile, hence the name. The creatures provided by this mod can be found across multiple biomes, and have their own interactions and mechanics.

This is one of many of our Mod Wikis, here at Minecraft Guides. If you're interesting in finding out about more of Minecraft's Best Mods, then check out our dedicated section! We allow you to sort by Forge, Fabric, Minecraft Version and Genre!

List of Mobs

Currently, there are 6 species provided by Creatures and Beasts. The first is the Grebe, which is a duck-like bird, that you might find spawning in Minecrafts River & Lake Biomes. These can be fed Fish.

Lizards can be found in warmer locations instead, like Jungles and Deserts. They’ll spawn in a multitude of colors. By feeding them Apple Slices (place an Apple inside a Crafting Table), they can be bred, as they’ll drop Lizard Eggs. Using a Net, you can catch Lizards.

Cindershell’s look like large Tortoises, and they can be found inside the Nether. If you kill a Cindershell, it will drop Shell Shards, which can be placed in a Furnace to smelt 32 items. So they’re much more efficient than Coal. To breed a Cindershell, try feeding them Warped or Crimson Fungus.

Sporelings can be both passive and hostile. Those that spawn in the Overworld are passive, whereas the Nether and End variants are both hostile, and will attack the player on sight. By dropping equipment that’s Cursed near a Sporeling, they will attempt to remove the Curse for you.

Inside a Swamp, you might find a Lilytad. These are easy to spot, as they’ll look like a giant Lily Pad on the surface, with them living underneath it. Shears can be used on Lilytads to obtain Flowers, which will eventually grow back.

Finally, there’s the Yeti. This beast will be neutral at first. However, get too close to a Yeti’s babies, and it will become hostile. Trust can be gained with a Yeti by feeding them Melon Slices, and bred using Berries. Yeti’s drop Hides, which can be applied to armor inside an Anvil to reinforce them.

How to Install

If you haven't already, make sure to install Forge for Minecraft. It's a simple process and takes just a few minutes. Once Forge is installed:
  1. Download the mod for your Minecraft Version. It will be a .JAR file.
  2. Take this file, and place it in the 'mods' folder of your Minecraft directory. If this folder doesn't exist, create it. The easiest way to access your Minecraft directory is opening the game, going to Resource Packs and pressing the 'Open Resource Pack Folder' button.
  3. Once it's inside the mods folder, run Minecraft with the Forge preset selected. The mod will be installed and can be played with in-game.
