This Minecraft tutorial explains the Mangrove Swamp biome with screenshots.

In Minecraft, you will spawn into worlds with unique weather, animals, and plants. These regions are known as biomes. Let’s explore the Mangrove Swamp biome in Minecraft.


In Minecraft, the Mangrove Swamp is a biome in the Overworld that was introduced in the Wild Update. It is muddy and murky, and located in warmer, more humid places where you’d normally find the Swamp biome. The floor of the Mangrove Swamp biome is coated with a thick layer of mud (in fact, the mud generates all the way from the surface down to the stone).

In the Mangrove Swamp, you can find lots of warm frogs hopping around (ie: white frogs). This is also one of the biomes where you can find bees.

Let’s explore the characteristics of the Mangrove Swamp biome.
