is this a mob spawner?

#1ODSTrooperPosted 5/11/2012 10:40:24 AM
First i was just digging a hole but after some time I found this cave and deeper inside the cave there was a spawner, but this was no ordinary spawner it didn't spawned zombies, spiders, skeletons or creepers but it spawned freaking pigs.

The first mob spawner i found ever is a pig spawner, it's not that i don't like the food but still.

So is this some kind of glitch or did more people found these spawners?

First one I found spawned skeletons. I died because I didn't know what to do :P

srry don't have any pics because first of all i don't know how to make good pics on the xbox and the server i found it on isn't mine.

Just wanted to know if this has happened to anyone else.

I found this pic on google so it is possible but it must be extremely rare to find a not mob spawner or it's another nice glitch.

Mob Spawners will have pigs in them on Peaceful difficulty, although they won't spawn anything.

I got a spawner on my easy mode with a pig in it how do I smash it? Lots of Monsters are spawning in the cave.

Hm, then they must have made all spawners show pigs and not the actual mobs they'd spawn. Tack some torches on all sides of it to stop any spawning, then it takes like 30 seconds or more to break it with a pickaxe (or any tool I think).

This is true, I have found 3 spawners so far. All had pigs inside, 2 spawned zombies and one spawned skeletons.
