Slimes are hostile mobs that spawn deep underground in the bottom 16 layers of the map, most often in large, cavernous spaces or open mines.
Killing a normal, big or huge sized slime will usually cause it to break into four smaller slimes. Slimes take burn damage from lava, and cannot swim.
Slimes do not grow in size, and the small slimes do not inflict damage. Small slimes will follow the player around harmlessly.
