You're in a cavern. It's dark. But your ears work fine, so you know you're safe. All mobs make noise, right? Zombies moan, Spiders squeak, Skeletons' Bones tinkle, Slimes splat, Endermen... make... Ender... Noises? Except... for the dreaded CREEPER, who makes no noise until it's TOO LATE! But... Do creepers make noise when they walk?

No, seriously. Do they? I'm in a cavern and I'm hearing something else taking steps, however I'm not hearing any other noises associated with mobs. Is this a Creeper creeping around somewhere?

The only noises they make is this hissing when they're close to exploding, their hit noise, and explosion noise.

But footstep noises? I do believe they do, but only on certain floor types.

That's a myth, according to my experiments. Creepers make footsteps on all block types, in the same way other mobs and players do. (I suspect the source of the myth is the randomness of footstep occurrences for wandering mobs and the quietness of stone footsteps compared to grass footsteps.) – Kevin Reid Mar 1 '12 at 2:11

Creepers sometimes make footstep noises, but only on certain blocks.

Can you elaborate? Could you say which bloks, or produce a source? – tombull89 Jan 14 '12 at 19:13
