Pig

From Minecraft Wiki

For articles on other pig-like creatures, see Pigs (Disambiguation).

Pigs are passive, animal mobs that spawn in grassy areas of the Overworld.

Overview

Pigs have a height of 1.1875 blocks, a length of 1.2545 blocks, and a width of 0.62505 blocks. Hitting a pig will cause it to flee for a short while, but it will calm down after a while. Additionally, pigs make an "oink" sound when they walk around.

Farming

Pigs are good for gathering porkchops. First, the player should make a fenced-in area, 4 blocks wide and 1 block deep, with a fence gate, then lure a pig into the farm with carrots, carrot on a stick, or a leash. After getting at least two, breed them as often as possible, by right-clicking on them with carrots, potatoes, or beetroots in one's hand, and kill one every time there are three or more than 4 adults.

Riding

Main article: Saddle

To ride a pig, one must first find a saddle in a dungeon, desert temple, jungle temple, trading from villagers, or from fishing as you cannot craft one. A saddle can be placed on the pig by left-clicking the pig (in the PC version) while the saddle is held in one's hand. The pig will then be wearing an orange saddle, and it can be mounted. A player cannot control the pig's movement unless they use a carrot on a stick, holding it in the direction they want the pig to walk. A mounted pig can be told to sprint by right-clicking.

A saddle can only be removed by killing the pig.

Breeding

A pig can be fed these foods to enter love mode.

When two adult pigs are in love mode within 16 blocks of each other, they make a baby pig. It takes one full Minecraft day (or 20 minutes) for the piglet to grow into an adult pig.

Piglet

Piglets are the baby pig variant of the pig (Notice how giant its head is compared to the rest of its body). To breed them, you need to breed 2 pigs with a carrot. In previous versions, unlike the regular pig, you could put saddles on piglets, but you couldn't ride them; as of 1.2.4, you can no longer put saddles on piglets.

Double Pig Jockey

Piglet can ride a pig. A pig is at the bottom and the piglet is at the top. You can ride them on boats and minecarts.

Trivia

  • Because a pig can be saddled, it has two texture files: one with a saddle and one without.
  • The infamous hostile mob, creeper, was accidentally created when Notch was trying to create a pig model. Notch had swapped the length and height, and so he decided to make it a new mob.
  • As of 1.2.3, adult pigs no longer follow piglets.
  • The pig has 6 related humanoid mobs: pigmen (changed to Zombified Piglin in the Nether Update), zombified piglins, Piglins, Piglin Brutes, Hoglins and Zoglins.
  • As of Beta 1.5, a pig will morph into a zombified piglin if it's struck by lightning.
  • Like sheep, squids, iron golemscows, etc. Pigs are wall-eyed.
  • Pigs didn't always have a protruding snout, this was added in Beta 1.8.
  • If a player rides a pig and then they fall off a cliff and the pig takes more than 4 HP in fall damage, the player will get the achievement "When Pigs Fly".
  • Pigs used to only drop 0-2 raw porkchops upon death, but it was eventually raised to 1-3 porkchops upon death.
  • When killed with fire, an adult pig will drop 1-3 cooked porkchops.
  • In Survival Test 0.24_05, the pigs were completely cross-eyed. This was the version when pigs were first added.
  • On the PC/Mac edition, if the language is changed to Australian English, pigs will be referred to as "Wombats."
  • While riding a pig, players can truly make it climb vines and ladders.
  • Pigs can naturally spawn in village pens.
