    The heron beak could be a drop, and be used to make a harpoon. It would be throwable by as many blocks as you had string in your hotbar slots, and retrievable. You could use it to fish, and to retrieve item drops from a distance.

    I'll definitely support the alligators

    Support for everything - alligators and frogs in particular.

    To add onto your idea: frog legs should be useable in potion of leaping (for the jump boost) too.

     

    And before someone suggests alligator leather for clothing, just no.

    This is the #1 Reptile, #1 Amphibian, and #1 Bird I think of when one says: "Swamps"

    Both frogs and alligator are edible.  (I've not had frog before, but Alligator is quite tasty).  Alligator hide could be used for Scale Armor. 

    I would think Herons would drop feathers.  Heron beaks aren't used in real life for anything, so making them weapons doesn't feel like it would fit with Minecraft.

    Can you make the Frogs, Herons, and Alligators tameable? That would be cool. I also think you should add bugs, for the frogs to eat. Thx! LawlessLoophole

    I think that alligators, heron, and frogs are an excellent idea, and would liven up the swamp a great deal.  In addition, I think fresh water fish and/or crustaceans should be added for the alligators and heron to prey on (crawfish, catfish, mosquito fish, and bluegill for instance).  Larger fish might also prey on smaller fish.

    The frogs should be tame able so you can have a pet frogs that can protect you from harmful mobs like witches and wolves etc

    Maybe u can use a bottle on the poison dart frog to get some frog poison, that when crafted in a tipped arrow way, making the frog-poisoned topped arrow, which will give, when shot at, a new effect, called frog poison, which IS basically poison but slower, however, it CAN KILL. It kills within two days in-game, just enough time before the phantom comes cos u won't be able to sleep. In a pufferfish way, if u get too close to the frog, u will get the effect. When u use the bottle on the frog,  there's a chance  of getting NORMAL POISON. I hope u like it, mind plays!  (Edit : the poison will deal 2 hearts of damage every 5 to 7 minutes ;) )

    Very cool! I also think it would be awesome if you could tame herons with fish, then they would hunt fish and bring it to you.

    I think the alligators should warn you by snapping their jaws at you, and only attack if you come as close as 8 blocks of them

    Herons should be capable of hunting any small mob such as silverfish rabbit and etc

    (They have been reported hunting even rabbits)

    I live in south Florida so I’m around many swamps, another cool creature that would make it feel more like a swamp is apple snails. They are large enough to be hit with a sword and could drop their shells or slime

    I love the idea

    I agree that the swamps need more love, and these are great ideas! If I could I would make a few minor changes, but this is still really cool!

    I like this idea, as I am thinking about proposing a animal spawning overhaul for biomes, and this fits perfectly1

    Hey, I really like this idea, but there should be some changes. First, the alligator death roll is too much for minecraft (Keep in mind target demographic), while older players like myself may not have an issue with it, I could easily see a younger player (below the age of 10) being quite frightened by it. Second, frog eggs should be visible in water and should be able to be broken by players (Tadpoles could act similarly to fish, but of course grow into frogs). Third, alligators should not be able to eat herons, instead I think they should go for fish and frogs. Fourth, herons should only attack fish. 

    Now onto additions. I believe gar (A somewhat common swamp fish) should be in the swamp, alligators can eat them, and they can be the size of a salmon mob. Ducks should replace chickens in swamps, chickens don't make much sense in swamps while ducks fit right into the biome, they could swim and walk on land. And finally a special smaller turtle (Based off real slider turtles) should be added for swamps.

    I have to add that alligators are generally too lazy to attack unless you bother them or they're hungry. I think you should have to get pretty close to them, and then they give you a warning before attacking you. I love love love the idea of giving the swamp life, especially the frogs. 🐸
