A new mob for the upcoming Nether Update.
Soul Crawlers are 6 legged, long, skull headed. territorial mobs that live in the new Nether biome, Soulsand Valley. (3.5 blocks long, 2.5 blocks tall)
The walls of the mysterious biome are filled with cave-like holes. Inside them, a sleeping monster is waiting to be awaken. Not until you make a bad move, come too close or perhaps bring some food that the monster carefully awaits, will they attack.
They are agile creatures with a long tail. While the head, spikes on the back of the creature and the legs are made out of bones, the body is made up entirely of soulsand. Just like spiders, they have the ability to walk on the walls.
Their home (which consists of around 2-5 connected caves) is where they are "sleeping". Packs of them consist of 3-6. They are extremely territorial (Seems like they could be guarding something) which means they will attack anything that comes within the 32 block radius, except the player (16 block radius).
Soul Crawlers are just waiting to see what the player desires. And if for some reason player puts food in a hotbar slot, they can smell the food, and go hunt. Not just for the food, for the player.
If you manage to get rid of them, there is a slight chance that, in a nest, a mysterious egg is found.
Could it be a new pet that you could use for your battles, perhaps use it as a mount, or just a trophy of defeating the horrible, corrupted creatures that these monsters are? It depends.
