How To Breed Llamas In Minecraft [Quick Guide]

Create Your Own Animal Convoy.

Llamas are a neutral breed of mobs that were first introduced into Minecraft in version 1.11, or the Exploration Update as it is more commonly known. These adorable creatures cannot be ridden by the player, but they can be used as portable material containers to transport large amounts of resources.

Key Takeaways
  • In Minecraft, Llamas are bred using the same process as almost all animals.
  • Introduced in v1.11, the Llamas cannot be ridden, but can be used to transport Items.
  • To breed Llamas, you will have to tame atleast two Llamas.
  • Press the ‘Use’ button to ride and Tame Llamas. It will be the Right Click on PC, LT on the Xbox controller, and L2 on the PlayStation controller.
  • While taming, you will be kicked off a few times, but keep pressing the Use button when kicked off until they are tamed.
  • Use Lead to guide them to your designated area for breeding. There, feed Hay Bales to them.
  • A Llama usually takes 1 to 3 Hay Bales each to begin breeding.

Once two Llamas begin to breed, Love Signs will come up in the area above them and a baby Llama will spawn between them.

But how do you get one of these Llamas for yourself? And later on, how do you produce more baby Llamas and increase the size of your personal herd?

Well, these are the two questions that we’re going to answer with our how-to-breed Llamas in Minecraft guide.

In order to breed baby Llamas, you first have to make sure that you tame at least two adults of the species for yourself.

This process is not all that complicated; it’s simply a bit different from taming other mobs like Horses, Wolves, or Parrots.

Taming a Llama

Mounting A Llama.

The first step in this process is locating some of these animals in your own procedurally generated world. You have to search in the Savanna and Mountain biomes, where they spawn in herds of 4 to 6 Llamas. You might not get lucky on your first expedition, but keep looking, and you will eventually encounter a group.

All you have to do now is go to one of them and mount it with the ‘Use’ button. This is right-clicked on PC, LT on Xbox consoles, and L2 on PlayStation systems.

You’ll probably be bucked off on your first try, but you have to repeat this mounting process multiple times. When you eventually see a bunch of flying hearts all around the screen, this means that the Llama you’re interacting with has been tamed.

Also, keep in mind that if provoked, Llamas are capable of being aggressive with their Spitting attack. So make sure you don’t accidentally punch them in the process of mounting them.

Once the whole taming process is complete, it’s a good idea to take your new pets into an enclosure so that they can’t wander off. If you’re really creative, you can even construct an animal pen that’s operated by a Redstone system.

However, Llamas do not accept saddles; the only way to control their movement is to use leads and guide them to the prepared area. After this has been accomplished, we can learn how to breed Llamas in Minecraft.

The Breeding Process

After the animals have been tamed and put inside a fenced area, you have to get some Hay Bales. These can be crafted by putting 9 Wheat in a 3×3 grid in the crafting menu.

The Wheat itself can either be grown using seeds or harvested from any farms within a village. For breeding a single pair of Llamas, we recommend crafting at least 6 units of Hay Bales. So that’s a total of 54 Wheat.

When you have the Hay Bales ready, walk up to your pair of Llamas and use the item on them both. It should take anywhere from 1 to 3 feedings each, but eventually, you should see hearts rising from the animals.
