With version 1.14. of Minecraft, the Mojang teams have done a lot of work on the animals that can be encountered in the game, especially foxes, which can appear in multiple colors. Changes of color which take place in particular according to the biome that the player visits.
One of the functions offered to the players is to tame the foxes. If you don’t know how to capture these wild animals, we offer you a clear and simple guide 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 do I tame a fox in Minecraft?
To tame a fox, you need several items. Here’s what you need…
- A leash
- Two sweet berries
- Two foxes to mate
Give a sweet berry to the two foxes to mate (if you can get them in a pen, it will be easier). They are going to have a baby fox (fox cub), it is him that you will be able to tame and not the parents!
Once the child is there, take out your leash and capture it. It is important to know that an untamed adult fox will attract our young toddler. What we’re about to tell you is ugly, but tie him up outside the pen so he doesn’t run away. Kill both parents or set them free to run away. Then bring the fox back to your house and he will love you as if you were his second mom or dad, then you can untie him and he will follow you everywhere without ever running away.
Tip – If you can’t find foxes to tame, it’s good to point out that it’s just like real life, they are more likely to go out at night. So, walk at night in the right biome to make sure you find some. Also, arctic foxes are harder to spot because they only appear in snowy areas.
Where to find sweet berries :
You can get sweet berries from sweet berry bushes found in the taiga biome, taiga hills/mountains and to a lesser extent in the snowy taiga biome. If you’re on the java version of Minecraft, you’ll also get them 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 that will be used to tame the little fox.
Congratulations, now you know how to tame a fox game in Minecraft. Once he’s grown up, here are a few things you can do with him.
Things your tame foxes can do :
- If you throw a block or other object from your inventory to a fox, it will pick it up and keep it in its mouth.
- Give an enchanted weapon to a fox and when it attacks a hostile target or game, its attacks will take the item from the enchanted item it is holding in its mouth.
- Give a totem of immortality to a fox, if it keeps it in its mouth, it can survive death just like your character when holding a totem of immortality in his hand.
- Get some Chorus from a chorus plant and give it to your fox, if he eats it (wait while he holds it in his mouth), he will be teleported within 8 meters like the Endermans.
