If you have been longing for tiny versions of animals to romp around in Minecraft, then today is your lucky day. Minecraft developer Jeb posted on his Twitter that you can now download and install the pre-release version of the 1.9 patch, which adds baby animals to the game.
Minecraft 1.9 adds an enchanting table, a new potion crafting system, and baby animals. BABY ANIMALS! They're just little versions of the full-sized critters, but they are really adorable. They don't drop loot or XP, so you won't have any reason to harm these little guys.
