Hide and Seek is probably one of the most popular games in the world. You’ve played it, we’ve played it, little Timmy, who always tried to be sneaky and cheat, played it. Even new parents and their relatives get to relive the excitement by playing hide and seek with their children! Besides it being genuinely fun, there is a heap of science backing up how beneficial it is to a developing body and mind. In fact, hide and seek is such a universal game that it transcends all barriers of language, age, and even species.
Scientists in Berlin taught rats how to play hide and seek in order to understand their behavior better

Thank-you for posting this. I am a vegan because I love animals and do not wish to harm them in any way. Animals have all the emotions – they are not some kind of a meat plant that feels nothing.
I got a kick out of the “scientific” fact that pet rats like playing HIDE AND SEEK. Anyone with a pet rat knows that fact without a scientific study. We don’t need anything except the joy these pets exhibit. They usually are the ones who teach their owners the game and will start a session. The fact that it is a game, rather the pet hiding to escape, is that the human can stop playing just by calling the pet’s name and it will come running out of the hiding place to see what the owner wants to do next. Our rat’s name was Esmeralda.
