What is the Sniffer in Minecraft?

The Sniffer is an ancient mob, that loves plants. In fact, they can sniff the ground to find seeds, that you can then use to grow more plants. The most peculiar thing from its reveal video was the part about it being able to get some new plants. So it is safe to assume with the release of the Sniffer, Minecraft might also release some new plants in the game. Since this is just speculation, we cannot confirm what the new plant or flower it will be.

How to Spawn or Find Sniffer

Sniffers will most likely not spawn in Minecraft. This is because they are an ancient mob that supposedly went extinct. So now that this mob is going to be added to the game, this mob is going to be a rare encounter, especially considering that it came back from extinction. But what you can do is hatch them from their eggs.

You can find Sniffer eggs in the Underwater ruins, more specifically from chests there. So make sure you are well equipped because when going on a search to find these eggs, there is a high chance you will encounter Drowned.

Lastly, information on whether you can breed two fully grown Sniffers is also not known. We should learn more about them when the mob is closer to being released.

When will the Sniffer release?

There is no official release date for the mob, but based on last year’s mob winner, we can expect it to release somewhere around June 2023. This is also when Allay released, the Mob vote winner for 2021.
