With the children comment I was actually referring to lying as
deception. Children develop the ability to lie at around three
years of age.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lie

Opossums, and other animals that 'play dead', are more all along
the lines of robots with regard to deception. It's unlikely that
these animals are consciously deceiving or even know what they
are doing. It is simply a behavior that works in the long run.

My guess is that the U.S. military may want deceptive robots in
the hopes of tricking enemy combatants.
