Fireflies are passive flying bugs that create a nice scene at night time. Their back glows like the spider eyes, so they can always be seen at night. This creates a wonderful atmosphere. They also spawn in caves. Fireflies cannot be hit by anything but shovels (because of their surface) like any other bug. They can be a great source of glowstone dust without going to the Nether.


  • This mob used to look like a yellow dot, but the model was redone for v1.2.
