How to attract animals in Minecraft

Animals are the most useful mobs in Minecraft, after hostile entities. They can be passive or neutral and some of them will yield multiple items. Many of these animals can be bred by players.

By attaching a lead, players can transfer their animals from one location to the next. There is an alternative method to attract animals and make them follow you.

Each and every animal that Minecraft has to offer can be attracted

Players must have their favorite food items in order to attract animals. Here is a list of all animals that can be lured, and the food items that attract them.

1) Sheeps, goats and cows

These are all passive animals that players will come across often. These animals are great sources of food as well as a few other items. Players must hold wheat in their hands to attract them.

2) Horses, llamas and mules

Recent updates have made it possible for horses, llamas and mules to follow golden carrots and golden apples as they are led by players. They can also be lured with wheat.

3) Chickens

They make a great food source and can be easily cultivated in automatic farms. Players must hold wheat in their hands and stand in the vicinity of a chicken to lure it.

4) Pandas

There are some additional requirements for breeding a panda. It is easy to lure them. To lure them, they will eat bamboo.

5) Pigs

These animals are passive in Minecraft. They can be attracted to using carrots. Players can ride these animals in any direction by using a carrot and a saddle.

6) Striders

These are the only passive mobs in the Nether World. They will follow Minecrafters who have a warped mushroom.

7) Bees

Bees are less old than most other mobs in this list. They were added to Minecraft's 1.15 update. They are attracted to players who have flowers in their hands.

8) Ocelots and cats

These mobs will not follow the player but can be trusted. Cats and ocelots will gradually approach players who are still holding raw salmon or cod for longer periods of time.
