Minecraft foxes: where they are, and how to tame them

There are lots of animals waiting to be discovered in Minecraft. Each one of them feeds on something different, so you will have to find out if you want to tame them and stop them from attacking you or if you want them to become your pets and help you in combat. This time, we focus on foxes and we will tell you everything you need to know about them.

Where to find foxes in Minecraft

There are different types of biomes in Minecraft: forests, deserts, plains, and more, and you will discover them as you explore the world. Each one has a particular type of fauna and flora, so in the case of the fox, you will have to find a taiga biome (snowy taiga and giant tree taiga, two variants of the taiga biome, are also valid) to have the opportunity to find them in the wild. To do this, you can either walk until you are lucky enough to find it or use a Seed to get there directly.

They usually appear near villages at night or in natural areas during the day. To increase your chances of encountering a fox, we recommend waiting in a village in a taiga biome until nightfall.

To tame a fox, you will need sweet berries. They are a type of food that can be found in nature, in bushes with reddish colored pellets, also in the taiga forest. When you find them you simply approach the bush and hit it with your fist to receive 3 berries in return.
