Sheeps are friendly creatures that live all arround the Overworld of Minecraft. All the sheeps have brown paws, dark eyes and pink mouth. Almost all the sheeps have white body as it simbolizes real sheep wool. However you can also find them in other natural colors like light grey, dark gray, brown, pink and black, but they are just the 5% of the sheeps. You can change the wool color applying different dyes on its body.
Its main function is to provide wool to the players, from the version 1.8 they can also provide meat tough.
Sheeps wander over the ground aimlessly. They do not have any danger sense so you can usually find sheeps in holes or falling down the hills or falling in the lava.
When a sheep is sheared it will lose the major part of its wool, but it will grow again when they eat the grass of the ground. Sheep will be attacked by wolfs when they are alone. As ptjer creatures they will follow the lights when the are in a dark place.
These animals will also follow the player when holding wheat in the hands. To make them breed you have to give wehat at two sheeps. After being together some minutes, a baby sheep will appear.
As many other creatures, Sheeps will never appear alone, but in groups of 2 or 8.
