Chipmunks With Stuffed Cheeks

Hungry? Well, these chipmunks sure aren't, not when their cheeks are so stuffed they look like they might just explode. These little creatures' cheek pouches can hold an amount of food three times the size of their head. Yeah! We kind of wish we could do that too. That way, we'd always have a snack within our reach or... within our cheeks. 

It's hard not to look at these and find them absolutely adorable. Small beings with huuuge cheeks that look particularly pinch-able. Don't get too close though, they're very protective of their chubby food-stuffed cheeks, and they will bite you. They'd still be cute - obviously - but your finger will hurt.

Cats With Chubby And Pinch-able Cheeks

It's an instinct that we just want, no scratch that, need to pinch the cheeks of adorable animals. They're just so darn cute, we can't help ourselves! And if they happen to have giant and super pinch-able cheeks... then, it's their fault really. 

No animal has a right to be so darn adorable! Chubby cheeks and all their glory:

Finally, the important questions are being asked!

This lil hamster can fit up to 20% of his own body mass in his cheek pouches! 20%!

....But how will he fit through his tunnel?
