In the latest Trails & Tales update of Minecraft, players can now interact with the beloved Camels in the game. These desert creatures are not only reliable companions but also the perfect rides for crossing desert biomes. But what exactly do they eat? If you’re curious, here’s a guide on what Camels eat in the Minecraft 1.20 update.
In Minecraft, Camels have a simple diet—they eat Cactus. Just like their real-life counterparts, Camels in the game prefer this prickly plant. Feeding them Cactus will earn their trust and allow you to tame them. To feed a Camel, hold a piece of Cactus and right-click on the Camel. Once fed, the Camel will follow you, and you can ride it. For better control, you can equip a saddle on the Camel. Don’t worry about the Camels hurting themselves while eating Cactus—they’re built to handle it. In fact, feeding them the right amount of Cactus can even heal their hearts and restore their health. You can find Cacti in the desert or grow them yourself.
Camels in Minecraft are tall, offering players protection from most melee attacks, making them excellent companions. To breed Camels, you’ll need to find two and feed them Cacti. This will trigger their love mode, resulting in the birth of a baby Camel. Keep in mind that you’ll need to wait five minutes before breeding them again.
