Minecraft update 1.4 to contain passive bats, new sounds

Minecraft snapshot features have shown off a new mob. It's a bat, and found in caves in the game. As in real life, they are only active during the evening and are passive creatures which will fly off when disturbed. If you decide to be mean and kill one anyway, they won't drop anything - yet. Bats are part of October's Pretty Scary Update, also known as 1.4, which includes the Wither, and other mobs as well as new sounds for mobs, tools, water and footsteps. Thanks, PCGamesN.
