Turtles are passive mobs that will be added in Minecraft 1.13 This is the page about the turtles being added into Vanilla Minecraft. For the page about modded turtles, click here. They were recently added into a 1.13 snapshot of the game.


Turtles will spawn in warm oceans. Sea Turtles will mate if you feed them both sea grass. The Sea Turtle's eggs will hatch and scrawl into the ocean. The eggs will only hatch at night. Zombies, Skeletons, Ocelots, and Wolves will unfortunately stomp on the egg.
