Mobs (short for mobiles) are moving entities that can be killed. There are three types in : Minecraft Passive, Hostile and Neutral Mobs. After Update 0.12.1, most Mobs drop Experience, with the exception of baby animals, Villagers, Squids, and Bats.
Passive Mobs ignore the Player and run away if attacked.
Hostile Mobs pursue the Player if they are close enough (however, in Creative Mode, they behave like Passive Mobs).
Neutral Mobs attack the Player only if aggravated, but might attack other Mobs under the correct circumstances.
Mobs tend to drop
Items that can be used for Crafting, Eating, or Smelting.
