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.
