Mobs that naturally spawn in 3 different sizes: Big, Small, and Tiny, and split into smaller Slimes when killed. They can be found in only specific Swamp Biomes, as a rare mob deep underground, or in Superflat worlds. Big and Small Slimes are both hostile, and Big Slimes always split into 2 Small slimes when killed, whereas Small Slimes can split into 2, 3, or 4 Tiny Slimes. Tiny Slimes are passive, and are popular pets among minecraft fans, because they will follow you around, and do not require taming, but they can despawn unless they have a nametag.Slimes are rare
