What do armadillos eat in Minecraft?

Minecraft Armadillos only eat spider eyes. This new mob lives in warm biomes like savannas and badlands while spiders often spawn in dark areas like mushroom fields and deep woods. Therefore, you need to farm spider eyes before traveling to the habitat biomes of armadillos to feed, lure, or breed them.

How to get food for Minecraft armadillos

You need to kill Minecraft spiders and cave spiders to collect their eyes. However, the spider won't drop its eyes when dying of fall damage. Therefore, Minecraft players must kill it by the Attack damage to collect spider eyes. Here are the best ways and tips to kill Minecraft spiders:

  • Always wear armor to stay safe from the spider's poison.
  • Use a powerful sword, axe, or bow to kill this mob. The bow is the best weapon to kill spiders which allows you to maintain a safe distance from this mob.
  • Enchant your weapon with Bane of Arthropods which buffs damage to arthropod mobs like spiders.

Besides, you can kill witches with a bow, iron sword, or diamond sword and loot desert temple chests to get spider eyes.
