Wild camels can be tamed and saddled (), similarly to most other mounts in the mod.
Taming and Riding Edit
Taming and riding this creature is performed the same way as horses: the player needs to get onto the camel's back with an empty hand over and over until the camel agrees to carry the player. Earlier on in the mod's history, it was possible only to put the saddle () on the camel and be ready to go.
The camel cannot be equipped with armour and although it can hop it doesn't really do anything. Camels that spawn in a Near Harad Desert Camp, however, have chests equipped, but these cannot be removed. Camels can have chests equipped similarly to donkeys by right-clicking them with a chest.
Camels can be bred after being tamed. For breeding, right-click each camel you wish to breed with one bundle of wheat (); it will then enter love mode, as is usual with horses. However, using golden apples () or golden carrots () will show hearts when fed to the camels, but does not start "love" mode.
