Minecraft: How to Tame a Llama


GamingMinecraft: How to Tame a Llama

Llamas are neutral mobs which where added to Minecraft back in 2016. They can spawn in both Savannah biomes and Mountain biomes in herds of up to 6.

One of the main uses of Llamas in Minecraft is for carrying items, as they can be equipped with a chest allowing them to carry up to 15 slots of inventory space. Whilst Llamas can also be tamed and be ridden, although they can’t be controlled.

In this guide, we’re going to quickly show you how you can tame and ride a Llama in Minecraft. Whilst this guide was created during 1.14, the steps should still be the same no matter what the version.

Taming a Llama

Thankfully, taming a Llama is really easy in Minecraft. No food or other items are required. All you have to do is find a Llama in a Mountain or Savannah biome and press the ‘Use’ button, which is Right Click on PC. It’s the same button you use to interact with objects.

You will mount the Llama. In a lot of cases, it will throw you off multiple times, but eventually, you will tame the Llama and won’t be thrown off. You will know if the Llama has been tamed as you will see love hearts come from it.

Once you have tamed a Llama, you will be able to breed it with another to create Baby Llamas. However, both Llamas that you breed will need to be tamed. You can use a lead to get your Llama to follow you back to your base or tie it up.
