Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 20w51a is the last of 2020 and it adds the much anticipated Axolotl mob. Infact there are five different axolotl’s.

Minecraft 1.17 Snapshot 20w51a

Features:

  • Added the axolotl!
  • Bundles and shulker box items will now drop their items when destroyed.
  • Some changes have been made to sculk sensors.

Axolotl:

  • Amphibious!
  • Axolotls currently love tropical fish, though this may change. Tropical fish or tropical fish buckets can be used to mate axolotls.
  • Axolotls will swim around with you if you’re holding a tropical fish or tropical fish bucket in one of your hands.
  • When a player kills a mob that the axolotl was attacking or being attacked by, the axolotl will show its appreciation by granting the player temporary regeneration and removing any mining fatigue effects.
  • You can pick up your axolotl in a water bucket and carry it around just like a salmon or cod!
  • Axolotls will always chase after squids and other types of fish.
  • Axolotls are skittish, but they will attack Drowned and Guardians if you tempt them with their favorite food – tropical fish!
  • Axolotls do not like it out of the water and will dry up and begin taking damage if they are out of water for longer than 5 minutes.
  • An axolotl will not dry up as long as they are in water or rain.
  • Sometimes when an axolotl takes damage, it will pretend to be dead so that it stops being attacked.
  • There are four common varieties and 1 rare variety of axolotl.
  • Axolotls do not spawn in the world in the world yet, but you can find spawn eggs for them in the creative inventory.

Sculk Sensors:

  • Eating Start has been removed as an event for a few reasons.
    • It is inconsistent with our philosophy around vibrations. Mining a block is not considered a vibration because a physical event hasn’t happened in the world yet (you can stop mining and the block will revert). This is the same for eating: you can start eating, but then stop and the food reverts as if eating never occurred.
    • It wasn’t widely considered to be a useful event for players to use sculk sensors with.
    • Eating Finish is staying, and will likely be much more useful to sculk sensors for this scenario.
  • Walking on wool no longer causes vibrations.
  • Throwing wool as an item onto the ground no longer causes vibrations.
  • Sculk sensors are now silent while waterlogged.
