How many hostile monsters are in Minecraft?

There are a total of 36 hostile mobs in Minecraft as of this writing. That is without including the two boss mobs, The Enderdragon and The Wither, but we also are counting the Wolf because if you attack it or a player that tamed it, it will try to kill you. We are also counting various forms of mobs as their own thing.

As time goes on, more updates will continually add more hostile mobs to deal with.
