A Bone.

The Bone, dropped by Skeletons and Wither Skeletons quite commonly, is used in the taming of Wolves and a handy item for farming, as it is used to craft Bone Meal.


When a Wolf is right-clicked on with a Bone, the bone is consumed and the wolf has a 33% chance of being tamed. This does not work if the Wolf is aggressive or already tamed.


A Bone is used to craft 3 Bone Meal, which is used as a dye and as a fertilizer for plants.
