How to tame Llamas in Minecraft

Taming Llamas works in a similar way to taming horses. You’ll need a bit of patience but there aren’t any special items needed.

All you need to do is go up to the Llama you want to tame and try to ride them. Make sure you’re not holding anything and keep trying to ride them. You’ll know if it’s been successful when the Llama displays hearts.

Ultimately, taming Llamas in Minecraft can be done through these easy steps:

  1. Find the Llama you want to tame.
  2. Right-click their back (or subsequent button for console players).
  3. Let it throw you off.
  4. Climb back on and repeat until hearts appear.

One note worth remembering when taming is that the Llama is the only tamable animal that will retaliate when players hit them. It will spit at you, dealing half a heart’s worth of damage, so try to avoid punching them.

The first thing worth noting is that you can only breed Llamas once they’ve been tamed, so be sure to go through the above steps first.

Once you’ve tamed the Llama, you’ll need to make a few hay bales which can be done using nine wheat in the crafting table. It’s estimated you’ll need around 1-3 per Llama.

Simply have the hay bales in your hand and feed each Llama until hearts appear. Then a cute baby Llama (cria) will spawn.

To be safe it’s always worth penning the Llamas in so they don’t wander away too far and not breed.
