An ancient game
Gladiators had fights between criminals or animals or other gladiators. Fights took place in arenas like the Colosseum in Rome, which could hold 50,000 people. That’s 15,000 more than the Wellington stadium!
Gladiators had battles with many different animals, often as warm up games before main battles.
Animals and humans
Animals and humans both use play to learn how to work together and to make friends. They both learn new things by playing.
