To breed Hoglins, players need to feed two adult Hoglins crimson fungus. Once fed, the Hoglins will enter "love mode" and produce a baby Hoglin.
Baby Hoglins are smaller, less aggressive versions of adult Hoglins. They will follow adult Hoglins around and grow into adults after 20 minutes.
Types of food
Hoglins are attracted to crimson fungus, which can be found growing in the Crimson Forest biome.
Building a shelter

Keeping animal safe from threats
Players should be vigilant in keeping their bred Hoglins safe from other mobs, such as Piglins, who may attack them. Placing a barrier between the Hoglins and potential threats is essential.
Ensuring animals' well-being

Hoglins are a formidable and valuable mob in the world of Minecraft. Understanding their characteristics, behavior, and breeding process can help players survive and thrive in the hostile environment of the Nether.
