Camels have finally been added to the game after years of complaints about the isolated desert environment in Minecraft. They are adorable, tall, and practical in many ways. Unfortunately, they are difficult to locate in the desolate desert. As a result, organising them into a group, much less a caravan, becomes nearly difficult. Finding camels won’t be a problem again if you understand how to breed them in Minecraft 1.20. With that out of the way, let’s dive into this tutorial and gather a camel caravan!

Note:Camels are currently only a test feature in Minecraft 1.20 Beta and 22w42a Snapshot. Since they are still in development, their mechanics could change before the official release.
What are Camels in Minecraft
Camels are inert Minecraft monsters that only appear in the desert biome. They are one of the game’s few mountable mobs, along with horses, donkeys, and mules. But what really distinguishes the camels in Minecraft is that two players can ride them simultaneously. Other than camels, only rafts and boats in Minecraft are compatible with this skill.
These lovely desert critters are still a worthwhile addition to your Minecraft house ideas even if you don’t wish to ride them. However, obtaining a large number of them can be challenging due to their biome exclusivity. Continue reading to see how to use just two of them to generate dozens of camels. In the meantime, you can learn more about other elements of camels in Minecraft 1.20 by reading the guide we’ve provided.
What Do Camels in Minecraft Eat
Cactuses make up the majority of the food for the camel, much like in the real world. They may be easily broken with any tool or with bare hands and are unique to the desert habitat. To protect yourself from the cactus, we advise using an axe.
Additionally, you must use their main food supply (the cactus) to produce camels in Minecraft, much like we previously did with other creatures. Therefore, be careful to gather at least two cactus pieces when you come across them. You can hold the cactus while a camel follows you if one is nearby.
How to Find Camels in Minecraft
Cannibals have been domesticated for many years at this point, as is well known. Therefore, in the actual world, finding them in deserts, far from civilisation, is rather rare. The game is no different in this regard. Only around desert communities do camels spawn in Minecraft. They are not present in desert biomes without villages. As a result, camels rank among the hardest mobs to locate in the overworld. Fortunately, breeding two camels will produce an infinite number.
Use one of our top Minecraft village seeds to hasten the process and you’ll quickly locate camels. When you do locate one, you have two options: either block it up until you find another, or trap it. Alternately, you can secure it to a fence or similar blocks using lead. Not to mention, you may have the camel follow you to the desired location by using a cactus.
How to Breed Camels in Minecraft
It’s time to build additional camels now that you are familiar with their fundamental workings. So, to breed camels in Minecraft, adhere to these steps:
1. Start by locating two camels and placing them adjacent to one another.
Camels typically don’t stray. However, as an extra measure of security, you can either surround them with a fence or restrain the tow camels with lead.
2. Next, right-click each camel or use the secondary action key to feed it a piece of cactus. You can see hearts popping over the camels’ heads when they are being fed. Following that, they will both move in the direction of one another, and shortly after that, a baby camel will appear.

3. The parents won’t be able to breed again for almost ten minutes after the young camel spawns. The young camel will also mature into an adult in around 15-20 minutes. The new camel can then be used for breeding purposes as well.
