Large World Jungle

A Jungle and an Underground Jungle on a large map.

The Underground Jungle is a dense network of small caverns, composed primarily of Mud, pools of Water, Thorny Bushes, and Beehives. It is located below the Surface of the Jungle biome and extends through to the Cavern layer.

The Underground Jungle always contains the Jungle Temple and 3 to 7 Bee Hives (depending on world size).

Common treasure rooms are Jungle Shrines, Underground Cabins, and Living Mahogany Trees.

In Hardmode, all enemies have a chance of dropping a Jungle Key () / Jungle Key Mold ().

Furthermore, the Underground Jungle undergoes several minor changes throughout the course of Hardmode:

From any enemy in Hardmode:

Medium 90 ft 360 ft 630 ft
