The Jungle is one of the surface biomes, similar to the Underground Jungle. It is composed primarily of Grass, Vines, Mud and Jungle Trees, with a dark green background. Moonglows can be found here. The Jungle contains Piranhas, Jungle Slimes, Jungle Bats, and Snatchers. Jungle Trees are generated automatically in this biome, since Acorns cannot be planted on Mud blocks. Unlike the other surface biomes, the Jungle biome continues below the surface (minus the trees).
The Jungle is a challenging area for new players. Jungle monsters have many more hit points and deal more damage than the slimes typically encountered on the surface. The Jungle Bats in particular can be quite deadly; although their damage output is not very high at first, they tend to swarm the player.
The Jungle can be a very rewarding place to visit, as well. Piranhas spawn quite often and will drop Hooks, an extremely valuable item to a new character. Jungle Slimes drop a large amount of money, and are not too difficult to kill. The Jungle is also a source of Moonglows, which can be used to make the Spelunker Potion; another very useful item for a new character.
It is possible to grow a new, separate Jungle biome with Mud and Jungle Grass Seeds. Once there are 150 tiles consisting of Jungle Grass and its vegetation in an area, a Jungle biome will be formed.
During the day:
This can be prevented by creating Hallow biome or three square wide buffers without any corruptible and dirt blocks on the edges of the jungle biome. To save jungles from full conversion, you need to ensure that there is no jungle grass blocks in three square radius to any corrupted, corruptible or dirt blocks.
