PLAY IS A SERIOUS BUSINESS

Post by jp2012 on Wed Jul 10, 2013 11:12 am

Playing is a serious business, children fully occupied in a make believe world, fox cubs play fighting or kittens teasing a ball of string are not just have fun. Play may look like a care free and highly spirited way to pass the time before the hard word of adulthood comes along but there is much more to it than that for a start play can even cost animals their lives. Eighty percent of deaths among youthful fur seals occur because playing pubs fail to spot predators approaching. It is also extremely expensive in terms of energy. Playing young animals use around two or three percent of their energy and in children that figure can be closer to fifteen percent. Even two or three percent is huge as per John Byers of Idaho University you just do not find animals wasting their energy like that he adds and must be the reason.
