How many inventory slots can a llama hold in Minecraft?

A llama can have up to 15 inventory slots and at least 3 inventory slots. This is decided internally when the lama appears. If you breed two llamas that each have 15 inventory slots, their offspring will have a 20% chance to also have 15 inventory slots. These are your best chances of getting llamas with maximum power.

Llama saliva deals damage in Minecraft. It might only be half a heart of damage, but if they’re properly fenced off and there’s no way for zombies to get to them, llamas can serve as sufficient guards for these undead enemies. They can also accidentally hit each other with saliva, causing them both to aggro each other. Try to separate them a little so that this does not happen.


Raising llamas for leather production is nowhere near as efficient as raising cows for leather production. Instead, you should consider breeding llamas due to their caravan potential. The ability to transport large numbers of llamas around the world will allow you to move from base to base without losing too many materials between destinations. Llamas can also be used defensively, their spit attack doesn’t deal much damage and can accidentally taunt another llama, but if you position the llamas correctly you can prevent zombies or other hostile mobs from attacking your lands.

Congratulations! Now you know what you need to breed llamas in Minecraft. While shulker crates in the endgame outweigh the potential benefits of a llama caravan, don’t forget that you can put a shulker crate in a llama’s inventory, potentially holding 405 inventory slots per llama. While you can ride llamas, you cannot maneuver them around your world. You will need leads to properly lead llamas around the world. However, it can be important to learn how to handle llamas as they can provide you with a lot of portable storage.
