With Minecraft version 1.14., Mojang’s teams have done a very big job on the animals that can be crossed in the game and especially on foxes that can appear in multiple colors. Changes that take place according to the biome that the player visits.
One of the functions offered to players is to tame foxes. If you don’t know how to capture these wild animals, we offer you a short, clear and simple guide to how to do so. Note that at the end of the article you will find several tips on what your new friend can do once he has become your pet.
How to tame a fox in Minecraft ?
To tame a fox, you need several items. Here’s what you need….
- A leash (lead)
- Two sweet berries
- Two foxes to breed
Give the two foxes a sweet berry to breed (if you can keep them in a pen, it will be easier). They’re going to have a baby fox, it’s him you can tame and not the parents!
Once the child is there, take out your leash and capture it. It is important to know that an adult fox that has not been tamed will attract our young boy. What we’re about to tell you is ugly, but tie it to the outside of the pen for those who don’t run away. Kill both parents or release them to go away. Then bring the baby fox back to your house and he will love you as if you were his second mom or dad, you can then untie him and he will follow you everywhere without ever running away.
★ Tip – If you can’t find foxes to breed, it’s worth noting that it’s like real life, they are more likely to go out at night. So, walk around at night in the right biome to make sure you find it. In addition, arctic foxes are more difficult to spot because they only appear in snow-covered areas.
→ Where to find sweet berries :
You can obtain sweet berries on the sweet berry bushes found in the taiga biome, taiga hills/mountains. If you are on the java version of Minecraft, you will also get it in the chests of houses in taiga villages.
→ How to create a leash to catch the fox :
It’s quite simple, you just have to combine 4 strings with a slime ball, which will allow you to make two leashes (lead) that will serve you to tame the little fox.
Well done, you now know how to tame a fox in Minecraft. Once he’s grown up, here are some things you can do with him.
Things your tamed foxes (adult) can do :
- If you throw a block or other item from your inventory at a fox, he will pick it up and keep it in his mouth.
- Give an enchanted weapon to a fox and when he attacks a hostile target, his attacks will take the element of the enchanted item that he holds in his mouth.
- Give a fox a totem of immortality, if he keeps it in his mouth, he can survive a death just like your character when he holds a totem of immortality in his hand.
- Collect chorus fruit from a chorus plant and give it to your fox, if he eats it (wait when he holds it in his mouth), it will be teleported within a radius of 8 meters like the Endermans.
