Be wary when traveling near lava, for a beast waits nearby. The nether croc is a hostile mob that lives in pools of lava found in the nether. it is normally floating in the lava occasionally peaking its head out. Whenever a player, piglin or hoglin comes near the lava, the beast will jump out and proceed to bite them, the bite will slow the player down. If the player is weak, it may attempt to drag them to the lava. If hit with your hand or a weapon, you will take damage due to the heat. The only way to damage it without hurting yourself is to either use a ranged weapon, a potion, a snowball, fall damage, crushing it, or using a potion of fire resistance. It will approach quickly leaving a streak behind in the lava similar to the one that a fish makes when It finds a fishing lure. It will reveal itself when it is near land. Once It comes on land, will chase the player at 6 blocks (easy), 10 blocks (normal) or 14 blocks (hard/hardcore). It will slow down on land but will be as fast as the players walking speed.
