Carrying Behavior

Transportation of materials from one location to another. This behavior is observed among many animal species which transport nesting material, food, or young. Humans are able to carry objects in their hands and arms. The invention of carrying containers enabled ancient humans to move away from vital resources such as water; it is thought by some researchers that humans may have transported water in either animal bladders or gourds.
