Baby Zombies are hostile mobs that have a 5% chance to spawn in place of a regular Zombie. They are are faster and more dangerous than their adult variants.



Baby Zombies can spawn naturally in the Overworld, but they only have 5% chances to spawn. The player can also spawn one with a Zombie Spawn Egg. Baby Zombies can also be found riding a Chicken, creating Chicken Jockey.


The baby zombie can run much faster than normal zombies. They can also stay alive during day, as they do not burn in the sunlight.

Baby zombies can fit through small holes and easily kill an adult Villager.


Baby Zombies might be more dangerous than zombies, but still, they have the same life with them, so an iron sword or above would easily kill them. A Wolf can also kill easily a baby zombie.


Baby Zombies when killed, they drop 0-1 rotten flesh and experience points.
