«Sniffer Skeleton» [UPDATE 1.1]

Sniffers are Minecraft entities that went extinct a long time ago. All that's left of them are their eggs. But if they're all extinct, where are their remains? Well, this Add-On will correct that misunderstanding

Installation Guides

If you are able to can you make this an mcaddon file, and before someone says to use Zarchiver I did and it didn't work. You don't have to do this if you don't want to though.
If when downloading addons, the file is downloaded in zip format, and the name looks something like «sniffer-skeleton-1.1.mcaddon.zip», you can simply change the file by removing «.zip». Then it will be in the format «mcaddon» and you will be able to install it in Minecraft without problems!
We also want to change that we post files in the format «mcaddon», just MediaFire because of the unknown to him file format turns it into a zip

had to make another account, retried it and it worked thanks for explaining it more
Does it work for versions later than 1.20.70?
pls make more fossils of the ancient mobs
an addon with sniffer-like mobs could be great and more if it's compatible with this
Will you add more skeletons or archaeology stuff in the future?
