Please welcome the latest addition to the Minecraft ecosphere: turtles!
Tom Stone recently announced thru minecraft.net that turtles have been added as one of the new mobs for the upcoming aquatic update for minecraft. or minecraft 1.14
This new mob will be appering across all platforms since as of the minecraft 1.13 update,
all versions of minecraft will be the same (finally) The texure for the turtle mob is not set in stone and will likely change before the full release.
The Update Aquatic pours a ton of new features into the game, including coral, kelp, more types of fish, dolphins, explorable shipwrecks, new water physics and more! A newly revamped ocean will require a new weapon for you to defend yourself, so the Update Aquatic will also introduce the trident. Not only can this weapon be thrown at enemies and used in close-combat, it can also be enchanted for ace tactical advantages. The Loyalty enchantment will make it come back to you even after you've thrown it, while enchantments like Impaler and Slipstream Dash will... well, we'll let you use your imagination! The Update Aquatic will come to Minecraft in a future update. (sometime in early 2018)
