Hungry Animals Mod is one of the mods that make the world in Minecraft more realistic and lively.  Have you ever wondered that why vanilla animals in the game are not starved to death and why they do not reproduce? This mod makes nice changes for your questions through changing vanilla animals’ feeding activity and AI.


Now, animals react to players. If you come close to them, they are naturally more afraid of you and run away from any player. Therefore, you need to use traps carefully and remember to be patient to tame and hunt them successfully. Wild animals can also eat grass and reproduce without help, so their population can grow. However, they can naturally die because of starvation or fierce competition if the population expands rapidly. That makes equilibrium with nature.

One more interesting change that the Hungry Animals Mod provides is adding excreta to the game. Animals begin to excrete, and they excrete a lot! You can see it everywhere, from fields to hills. Be careful with the stuff because it can cause serious outbreak and be toxic to humans as well as other animals. If treated correctly, it will become good manure for growing crops such as wheat and carrots. You can even make saltpeter with excreta if you have other mods that add sulfur.

The mod also provides you modern machines like blender, thresher and millstone. These machines help you automate the animal breeding process, improve your production and reprocess excess materials. Especially, if you do not want to run your machines with hand, you can use the tamed animals.
