Skeletons, in my opinion are the WORST monsters in minecraft. The reason i believe this is because when ever i am building or trying to sleep they find a way to hit me and kill me! Skeletons have about 9 lives and use long ranged attacks. Skeletons have about a 80% chance to drop bones or arrows. They have about a 30% chance to drop a bow and about a 20% chance to drop a enchanted bow.
