A strider is a type of creature in the Minecraft game. It can be controlled with a stick that is shaped like a carrot or a warped fungus. They can move forward by riding on the sticks and are a bit faster on land than on lava. They also take fall damage in lava. Unlike pigs, striders never naturally spawn baby striders.
Triders are not able to use nether portals. If they are being ridden by a player, they cannot go through lava. However, they can dismount onto a solid block and go out of the lava. In addition, a strider can spawn babies when given warped fungus. These babies can give a player one to seven experience orbs. However, it takes 20 minutes for the baby striders to grow up.
