Here we have a Minecraft Creeper – Hot Properties Village by Department 56 (6004996). In the game of Minecraft, Creepers are common green, stealthy hostile mobs. They?ll silently approach players and then explode after coming within 3 blocks of their targets. Basically, if you?re playing Minecraft you don?t want Creepers creeping up on you. They like to kill players, and they damage both the environment and players? constructions. They?re a major source of gunpowder, and when they?re struck by lightning, they?ll become charged in a way that amplifies their explosion power.?
