The Nitro Creeper is a red creeper added by Natura that is be found in the Nether. Its fuse time is much shorter than a normal creeper's (about half a second). Be cautious, because by the time you hear it, it's too late.
The Nitro Creeper is red with pale-red spots all around its body and its texture seems wool-like. Its face has big golden eyes with a small smile. It will explode immediately with a very short charge-up, unlike a normal creeper that charges the explosion and gives you time to run away. This makes it almost impossible to kill it with any melee weapon. Ranged weapons are advisable. Also, if you electrify a Nitro Creeper with a Storm Shot, and kill it, it can loot half a stack of Gunpowder Making it one of the easiest way to get it.
