How to Breed Turtles in Minecraft? 

Breeding turtles in Minecraft is a pretty straightforward task once you obtain the required materials. For one to breed turtles, they would need to craft a shear, gather seagrass, and of course, find two adult turtles. 

Here’s how you can breed turtles in Minecraft: 

1. Finding Two Turtles

To breed turtles, you’ll need two fully grown sea turtles. They can be usually found on beach biomes in Minecraft. You would often see them walking along the beach or swimming in the water.

Since you can’t pick up a turtle and take it to a particular location, the only option you have is to dig a hole in the sand around two turtles. However, leaving the two turtles in the hole won’t make them mate. 

Proceed to the next step below to continue with the process.

2. Crafting A Shear

To get sea turtles to mate, you’ll need to feed them seagrass. However, before you can get your hands on seagrass, you need to have a Shear. You’ll need two Iron Ingots to craft this item in Minecraft. 

Iron ores in the game can be found within the proximity of most mountains in Minecraft. 

Once you have enough Iron Ingots, go to the crafting table and place the materials in the 3×3 crafting grid as shown below:

Collect the shears afterwards and proceed to the next step. 

3. Gathering Seagrass

Dive into the water on any ocean biome until you reach the sea bed. You should see the seagrass located near the shoreline. Equip the shears into your hand and point them towards a bed of seagrass.

Gather as much seagrass as you can before going back to the shore. 

4. Feed the Turtles

Go back to the Turtle that you caught and select the seagrass in the hot bar. Now, give the seagrass to each sea turtle. Once you’ve fed both turtles, you should see red hearts appear above them. 

This indicates that both turtles entered the “love mode”. After a while, the hearts should disappear, and one of the sea turtles should start digging and lay four eggs on the ground. 

Now all there is to do is wait for the baby turtles to hatch. However, they will only hatch at night, so waste your time waiting for nothing during daylight. You can grow baby sea turtles into an adult by feeding them ten seagrasses.

Sea Turtle and Egg Behavior

Sea Turtles are passive mobs in Minecraft. This means that they won’t fight back when attacked. It is vital to keep this in mind since turtles can be attacked by various creatures such as Zombies and Ravagers. 

If you want to create a sea turtle farm, be sure to put some defensive measures to protect them from hostile mobs.

Once laid, turtle eggs are very brittle. If you accidentally step on an egg, there’s a good chance that it will break. Dropping it will likely result in breaking as well. Adult turtles can also break their eggs to make sure to store them in a safe place.
