A hornet in the underground jungle biome.

Hornets are inhabitants of the Underground Jungle biome, they are airborne, and normally spawn in groups, to represent the swarming nature of real hornets. Like Demon eyes they move away from you when you hit them with a sword out of the player's reach and then charge back at you. It is advised that you corner them up against a wall to kill them effectively. They deal an attack damage of around 22 - 27 depending on what armor the player is wearing. They drop Blade of Grass, Thorn Chakrum, as well as the elusive Ivy Whip.
