Minecraft Glow Squid is a passive mob that wander around aimlessly in the water bodies. While moving, they slowly move their tentacles in a regulated fashion and move forward.

They will suffocate if they leave the water body and die. They do not attack the players or try to harm them in any way.

Even though their name is Glow Squid, they do not produce light an glow with a soft color. They will also stop glowing if the players attack them and release a bright liquid from their mouth.

The Glow Squids are also hunted by Guardians, Elder guardians and Axolotls. Although there are baby Glow squids, there are no ways of breeding them. This is a trait that they share with the Squid.
