To create a snow golem, the player must stack two snow blocks, and then place, or dispense, a pumpkin
The snow golem spawns at the location of the pumpkin when created horizontally.
Snow golems search for the nearest monster and attack it until it dies.
Endermen are capable of creating snow golems by placing the necessary blocks, although this is an extremely rare event because they do not do so deliberately.<1> In Bedrock Edition there is a remote possibility of a snow golem spawning naturally if a pumpkin happens to grow adjacent to two snow blocks.
Snow golems drop 0–15 snowballs upon death.
Snow golems do not follow players. Snow golems have good path-finding skills; like most mobs, snow golems avoid cacti, fire, lava, and water. They avoid falling off cliffs, although they are immune to fall damage. Snow golems can be put on leads and tied to fences.
Snow golems “melt” (take fire damage) in biomes with a temperature greater than 1.0, or dry/warm biomes like badlands, deserts, savannas and biomes in the Nether. The Fire Resistance effect allows them to survive in these biomes.
They also melt (take damage) when in contact with rain or water.
A snow golem wears its carved pumpkin as a helmet, just like the player does: its actual head is hidden beneath. Shearing a snow golem removes the pumpkin, revealing its face and making it drop the pumpkin. The pumpkin is not part of its ArmorItems; a snow golem does not display its HandItems or its ArmorItems. The player cannot give a snow golem a new pumpkin after shearing it off.
Despite being made of snow, they still take freezing damage from powder snow
As they move, they leave a trail of snow on the ground if the blocks can support it.<6> If a snow golem is on a hopper, a snow trail does not appear. They produce snow only in biomes having a temperature less than 0.81, which includes cold, snowy, and temperate biomes (including the End though not jungle).
