Sheep act like most passive mobs; they wander around aimlessly, avoid falling off cliffs high enough to cause damage, and usually stay out of water or lava. They can be heard bleating occasionally. They will try to jump over obstacles one block high, which sometimes causes strange behaviour near fences, walls and similar blocks. They scare easily, though, and will attempt to flee for a few seconds if attacked.
This Minecraft Sheep plush features a fleece with a golden lustre. I wonder if that makes the wool more valuable? Add it to your Minecraft home base today!
