A couple of hours ago, zombies invaded my camp and killed me. A minute later I found my camp and there was a zombie with an enchanted iron shovel. The weird thing is that I don't have a shovel and don't have a enchanting table either, so, where did the zombie pick it up from?

This question appears to be of a non-serious nature, and cannot as such be answered properly. – obskyr Jul 20 '13 at 21:31
@LpSamuelm, I'd say it's just someone who just doesn't know that mobs can spawn in with enchanted items. Still, probably a dupe of (Though, that's more about mobs dropping enchanted items, this seems to be about the later-added fact that they can spawn with them equipped, and drop things they were carrying) – Billy Mailman Jul 20 '13 at 21:33
what do you mean non serious nature? – anthony Jul 20 '13 at 21:33
@anthony If you mention herobrine the people here seem to freak out and dismiss the question. – Batophobia Jul 20 '13 at 21:35

Zombies sometimes spawn with random items in their hands or armor equipped to their bodies, they may or may not drop said items when they die.
