Hammocks are said to have originated in South and Central America, they were originally made from the bark of the hamack tree. Later the material was replaced by a plant fiber, reasons that hammocks became so popular is because it gave the people the ability to provide safety from disease transmission, insect stings, or animal bites. By suspending their beds above ground, inhabitants were better protected from snakes, biting ants, and other harmful creatures.
