Zebra Creepers are quick to react and will run away from anything that chases them. If a baby Zebra Creeper is approached, any nearby adults will follow the player and ram them to deal damage. They will stalk slowly towards you if you hold out a piece of long grass, which can only be obtained with a tool enchanted with Silk Touch.
Zebra Creepers are found commonly in flat, sunny areas and sometimes in the hills biome. They are found in groups of up to a stunning 30.
