The Minecraft Live 2022 Mob Vote saw overwhelming support for the Sniffer, making it the newest mob coming to Minecraft version 1.20 alongside other features, including archaeology. This ancient and extinct mob is coming back to life thanks to your votes.
The Minecraft Twitter states, "The sniffer is making its debut in Minecraft 1.20 and will be coming soon to snapshot/beta!" This will allow fans to get an early look at the new Sniffer mob ahead of the official release. Check out Minecraft's guide to snapshots to see how to check out the Sniffer early.
The Sniffer is a formerly extinct mob that can sniff and seek out rare seeds. But you will need to find this mob to see it in action—unless you use Creative mode. Archaeology comes into play, as you can find Sniffer eggs in the new Suspicious Sand block. With the egg in hand, you can hatch your very own adorable Snifflet.
With the Sniffer come new and exciting plants that will be perfect for adding more life and variety to your garden. Be sure to find and hatch a Sniffer when Minecraft version 1.20 releases and show off your botanical skills.
