CreatedDate field is hidden ? *Noob Alert*

The following query works perfectly fine and returns all of these fields but when i checked Account objects fields i could not find CreatedDate field there. What is the reason for that , is this field hidden or something ? 
SELECT  ID,
        Name,
        Industry,
        CreatedById,
        CreatedDate,
        LastMOdifiedByID
FROM    Account

It is system generated field and not available in page layouts though you can query it. It applies for all the objects.

You can create a formula field to capture createddate and use that on the pagelayout

Hi Deepanshu ,
CreatedById,  CreatedDate,  LastMOdifiedByID are all standard system fields on any object.Those fields are created automatically by system to provide more information about any record of that object like when a record is modified?who created it? etc. This fields will be seen in the record detail page when a record is created for that object.

You won't see CreateDate, Created By , Last Modified Date etc fields while trying to see Object fields configuration screens as they r system generated fields which cannot be configured. They can be queried or seen on object detail page layouts.
