What Do Llamas Eat in Minecraft? [Answered]

Wondering what to feed your llamas in Minecraft? We’ve compiled a list of foods in this article to help you learn what llamas eat in Minecraft.

If it were not for the mobs, the vast sandbox worlds in Minecraft would have felt weirdly empty. Mobs, especially animal-type mobs, help build the character and atmosphere of biomes. For example, Minecraft llamas are found in tall hilly areas like savanna plateaus. 

Llamas are neutral mobs inspired by none other than the real-life llamas. A llama can be tamed in Minecraft to become your pet animal and you can ride on it.

Mojang added llamas to Minecraft as part of the 1.11 Exploration Update. This update aimed to improve various features of the Overworld, including specific biomes. In those days, hilly biomes were somewhat lonely and empty, causing developers to add llamas. 

In this article, we take a look at Minecraft llama, especially its eating habit. Like other animals, players can also feed food to llamas. Let us explore the foods that llamas eat in Minecraft. 

What do llamas in Minecraft eat?

Llamas in Minecraft eat two types of food: wheat and hay bale. Both of these items cannot be consumed directly by the player, but llamas would love to fill their stomach with these two foods.

Much like real-life llamas, Minecraft llamas are also herbivore creatures. Players can find llamas grazing grass blocks in the following biomes: 

  • Windswept Hills
  • Windswept Forest
  • Windswept Gravelly Hills
  • Savanna Plateau
  • Savanna‌ [Bedrock Edition only]
  • Windswept Savanna‌ [Bedrock Edition only]

In case players are searching for llamas, the biomes mentioned above are the best places to discover regular llamas. As for trader llamas, they spawn near a player’s base every few days along with their master, the wandering trader.

Players can get wheat by growing wheat seeds on tilled land. Wheat seeds can be obtained by breaking grasses and bushes found over grass blocks. After seeds have grown completely, players can break them to get wheat crops. 

Hay bale can be obtained by combining nine wheat on a crafting table. Players can also find lots of hay bales lying around in villages. If players do not have enough wheat for crafting hay bales, stealing hay bales from villages is always an option. 

What happens after feeding food to llamas in Minecraft?

After eating wheat, a llama will recover a single heart if it is hurt. Feeding wheat to a baby llama will increase its growth rate. Usually, a baby llama would take 20 minutes to become an adult. Players can fasten this process by feeding food to baby llamas. 

Hay bale helps a llama recover five hearts. Like wheat, hay bales also help baby llamas grow faster. Players can feed hay bales to llamas to make them breed in Minecraft. Feeding hay bale to llamas will make them enter love mode and then spawn a baby llama.
