Husks are variants of zombies exclusively found in Desert Biome .

Overview

The husk is a variation of the common zombie, similar to how the stray is a variation of a skeleton . Husks are similar to zombies in most ways, except for two

major differences: husks can survive in sunlight and when the husk punches a player, it will give them a temporary hunger effect that lasts about thirty seconds. If the husk is holding any item, including weapons , the hunger effect will not be applied. The husk is slightly taller than the zombie, which means they cannot get through some gaps.

Husks are well-adapted to live and survive in deserts. They have dark brown skin compared to a normal zombie, which may indicate why they are more capable of coping with the harsh sunlight of deserts. This is especially evident with their capability to not burn in sunlight; something that regular zombies do not possess. Additionally, they have light-brown colored garments, which help them better camouflage among the cream-colored sands of the desert.

If a husk happens to enter a body of water and remains for 30 seconds, it will transform into a regular zombie. If it continues to remain in the water for another 30 seconds, it will change into a drowned.

Spawn

The husk will spawn instead of a zombie (most of the time) in desert biomes. Any zombie spawned under the sky in the desert at night has an 80% chance of being spawned as a husk.

Husks also have a chance to spawn from a regular zombie Spawn Egg .
