Creepers are hostile mobs that emit a hissing sound followed by an explosion when in close proximity of a player.
Creepers spawn anytime underground, and at night or in dark locations on the surface. They do not catch fire from direct sunlight.
A creepers explosion timer will reset if the player moves out of its blast radius before detonation. When killed before their explosion triggers, a creeper will drop gunpowder.
If lightning strikes within 3-4 blocks of a creeper, he will be electrified, transforming him (or her?) into a Charged Creeper (aka Thunder Creeps or Electrocreeps). Charged creepers have a blue glow surrounding them, and their explosions do more damage with an increased range. Do not hug charged creepers.
