Can mobs drop special items?

I suddenly found an enchanted bow with Power I in my inventory. I did not craft it myself since I don’t have an enchantment table. I’m playing on a private server with 2-3 friends and none of them made one either. And I’m pretty sure I did not find it in a chest somewhere. I just randomly found it. Lucky me! Now I would like to know where it came from 🙂

    Zombies, skeletons and zombie pigmen each have a 2.5% chance of dropping a rare drop, if they drop, there is a 20% chance of it having an enchantment which would cost 5 levels in a enchanting table. Using a sword with the looting enchatement increases these chances.

    Skeletons can drop bows, zombies can drop iron tools, helmets or ingots and zombie pigmen drop gold tools, helments or ingots.


    It could have happened is a friend fished it and didn’t pick it up. This will sound weird if you haven’t heard it before, but I got a leather can, 2 wooden sword and a wooden pick by fishing once! It’s way more likely you will get fish though. And I have never seen someone fish something enchanted… still sorta funny, fishing hats!
