- This article is about the Jungle biome that is found on the surface. For the Jungle found underground, see Underground Jungle.
It hosts new types of enemies such as the Jungle Bat, Jungle Slime, Piranha, (although Piranhas do spawn in other areas), Dr. Bones and the Snatcher. The land is covered in jungle grass, and the sky turns a kind of greenish hue when entered. Like the Underground Jungle, the ground is mostly made of Mud. If your world was created before the 1.0.4 patch, it is possible to create an artificial jungle by placing mud over a large surface of the map and placing Jungle Grass Seeds on the mud. This is a good way to get lots of lumber without needing to plant anything. Jungle enemies will spawn and jungle trees will grow. When it is night at a jungle, the moon will turn green.
In the Jungle trees will automatically regrow anywhere there is 'Jungle Grass'. This feature was probably implemented because you are unable to place acorns on the mud. Jungle grass can be planted on Mud in other locations using Jungle Grass Seeds. Trees can also grow underwater which is a feature exclusive to the Surface Jungle.
The Surface Jungle always directly connects to the Underground Jungle, which can make it easier to find the Underground Jungle.
- Like the Underworld, the Jungle is one of the safest Biomes in Hard Mode of version 1.1.
