The Soul Sand Worm- a tunnelling hostile mob for the Soul Sand Valley! Soul Sand Worms would be a new type of hostile mob that would be found only in the Soul Sand Valley biome in the Nether.
They spawn underneath the Soul Sand, tunneling through it in search of its next meal- you! Players can get a hint of where a worm is by looking for the dirt particles that show up as they tunnel underneath. Unlike the Ender Dragon, Soul Sand Worms do not destroy the blocks they tunnel through. However, they can only tunnel through Soul Sand- if they're spawned anywhere else, they'll move a lot slower. They move faster on Soul Sand than any other mob, not being affected by its slowing properties. They're also immune to fire damage. Soul Sand Worms are about 1 block tall, and about 6 blocks long.
When a player gets within its sight range (around the average range for hostile mobs), it'll burrow towards them and surface a few blocks in front of them. When they surface, the Soul Sand they are touching ignites for a brief moment, and they lunge at the player. They don't have much control over the angle of their lunge once they surface, so a fast player can sidestep their attacks and counter them. Their bites have a chance to ignite the player in blue flames. Despite being difficult to strike, they don't have a lot of health, making it so the player only has to hit them a few times to kill them.
