So here I am, walking through a new cave system I found when I round a corner to see...
BAM, a skeleton riding a spider. I'll post the pic but It's terrible since I was on my laptop and for some stupid reason i accidentally hit numlock which messed up my FN + PrntScreen.

You can see how the skeleton's legs are bent. But these two came bouncing up through the cave, firing arrows and tackling me at the same time. I was in such a panic trying not to die that the screenshot came out awful but I did manage to whip out my bow and shoot them both down with 4 hearts left.

Was this just a fluke or have any of you others seen stuff like this? I really liked how that turned out honestly and I hope to see more of them. Really caught me off guard

Alas, the search button was created by the almighty admins. After its creation, "The Search", as forumers called it, was placed in the top right, and has thus being laying there to this day, waiting for someone to use it.

Again, yes the pic is terrible. Really sorry.
How does that even work out like that? I think it would be great if Notch implemented rider mobs like that more often, pretty cool

And if people did use the search button then you would have no reason to post whore, now would you?  People constantly posting things about using the search button are annoying, who cares if someone puts a new topic, if everyone always used the search button, then no new topics would ever get posted and old topics would take ages to read through.  I have yet to see any moderator tell anyone to use the search button instead of make a new topic, it's not against the rules to make a new topic, and I for one, don't find it annoying when someone wants to share their experience, you don't HAVE to read the topic if you don't like it.
We will not die this way, THIS IS ABSOLUTION. Death claims us no more, NO MORE.
Do not grieve, end the suffering. We will live, live eternal.

Hmmm, good point.
My apologies, I almost became the whiners I hate.

I don't see why people believe it's some sort of glitch or mistake or something. The skeleton's legs are bent to make it look like he's riding something---the spider. They don't ACT glitchy... Oh, and of course, you are DEFINITELY the ONLY person to ever experience a feature in a game, cause it's rare! Yep!

Stop making these damn threads.

Sorry man, all minecraftforum has got is rapists and a couple of puppy kickers.
Some of us only rape a little, though, if that helps.

I saw one once, like 50 blocks away. Hordes of other mobs killed me 3 times in a row whilst I attempted to take a screenshot. I died, and I never saw it again.

I found one early on... but he fell into my lava trap... so satisfying.
Witty comment.

I saw one from a treehouse once, it was about 50 blocks away. According to minepedia's mobs page, 1 in 100 spiders spawn with a skeleton on their back. This isn't a glitch, and I'm glad I didn't have to fight one in a cave.

So I turned it to peaceful.
