Hoglin

Hoglins are a hostile mob that spawn in the crimson forest biome in the nether. They are the only source of leather and pork in the nether and are also the only breedable hostile mob in the nether.

Where do Hoglins spawn?


Hoglins spawn in the crimson forests usually in groups of 4. They can spawn on top of most blocks except nether warts and shroomlights and can spawn at any light level. 5% of hoglins spawn as babies. Even though they are hostile mobs, they will spawn in Peaceful difficulty and will be passive to players.

How do hoglins behave?


Hoglins will attack players within 32 blocks on sight by flinging them into the air. Baby hoglins will also attack you but they deal less damage and won't fling you around as compared to adults. If you have warped fungus or are near it (within 7 blocks) hoglins will not attack you and will run away instead. If a hoglin is brought to the overworld it will start shivering and after 15 seconds it will turn into a zoglin.


What do hoglins drop?


When an adult hoglin is killed it will drop:

  1. 0-1 leather
  2. 5 experience orbs
  3. 2-4 raw porkchop (cooked porkchop if killed while on fire)


The maximum number for leather and raw porkchop increases per level of looting on the weapon used. Unlike most baby mobs, baby hoglins will in fact drop some experience orbs.


Breeding


Other than killer bunnies, hoglins are the only hostile mob that can be bred. To breed hoglins you will need to feed them crimson fungi. Like with most breedable mobs, they have a 5-second cooldown before they can breed again. Baby hoglins need 20 minutes to grow up, and feeding them reduces the time required to mature by 10%.

Zoglins


When a hoglin is spawned or brought to the overworld or the end, it will start shaking and shivering, and transforms into a zoglin after 15 seconds. Leads will disconnect when the transformation occurs, but zoglins can be leashed with the lead as well. 20 seconds after transforming, the zoglins will have a Nausea effect which is mostly a decorative effect as it doesn't affect its behavior.

Conclusion


If you are in the Nether, you can rely on hoglins as a reliable food source, but be careful as they have the ability to fling you around.
