Turtles. They wander the ocean, sometimes floating slowly on the surface, sometimes cruising the deep sea.
Turtles have 10 hearts of health (Dem tough shells), and can drop either 1 shell, or none.
Shells can be crafted into armor (In between Leather and Iron), or be shot at enemies (1 heart).
Turtles can also be saddled, providing a fast, awesome way of traveling the high seas.
Careful, cause the turtle can dive at any time, leaving you to drown in the merciless waters.
You can also breed them! Turtles require water at least 3 blocks deep in order to survive. Instead of eating wheat, turtles eat raw fish, and will follow you when you're holding it. They move surprisingly fast on land (Player speed), but prefer to go into water if they sense it's near.
I think that you could have Huuuuuuuge tortoises and stuff that walk really slowly. that would be awesome. and then, when enemies attack them, the stand up and start jumping around like Yoda does. :smile.gif:))
