The age old question of "how much food could a hamster fit inside their cheeks?," is being answered thanks to BBC Earth!

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?

Did you know that a single chipmunk can store up to 8lbs of food in a burrow and that his cheeks can expand to three times the size of its head?
