You may see some foxes in the Minecraft game and you think that they are cute. So, what do you think then? You might want to get the fox as your pet. If you want to get a pet fox, you have to prepare several things that you have to know how to get the fox.
To get a fox, you will need these things:
- A lead which is like a leash
- Two sweet berries
If you do not know where to get berries, you can gather them from the sweet berry bushes which can be found scattered around taiga biomes.
Then, you will have to make a lead. You can craft the lead yourself unless you get lucky and find one. If you want to craft a lead, you can craft it using these things:
- Four string
- One slimeball
Now, it is time for taming. If you have had your berries and lead and also have found a group of foxes, now you have to tame or get them by following the steps below.
- First, you have to give a sweet berry to one fox.
- After that, you also have to give a sweet berry to the second fox.
- Then, you need to wait for them to breed.
- Now, you have to attach the lead to the baby fox.
- And you can walk away.
After you did these steps, the fox kit will be attached to you and will follow you wherever you go. Now, they can be your friend in the game.
When you try to get a fox, you may be curious when you can find it. It is important for you to note that foxes are nocturnal animals. It means that if you want to find foxes, you have to go when it is dark. At night, you are able to find foxes in taiga biomes. It is because usually they like nesting in leafy forests. You are able to find foxes in taiga, giant tree taiga and snow taiga biomes. Also, you are able to find them in taiga villages in case those are kicking around your world.
Foxes will try to find shelter to sleep during the daytime. They will curl up and make snoring noises. Also, they will slowly lift their heads every so often while they are lying down. If you are not sneaking when you are approach, they will wake up and run away.
Different from daytime, at night, foxes will wander around and will eat sweet berry bushes near them. Also, they will run from wolves, polar bears, and players if they get too close. Sometimes, foxes will go to villages to roam around. And they will emit a screeching noise when it is night.
So, do you still want to get a pet fox in Minecraft? If you still want it, you can do the steps that we give above and make sure that you can get it. You also have to be careful when you get it since it may be a little bit dangerous.
