Why can a hamster stuff so much food into its mouth?

Answer

Hamsters can stuff so much food in their mouth because they have bulging cheeks. This is also because the cheek pouches do not contain salivary glands so the food stuffed in them stays fresh and dry. The coarse touch of the skin coating the cheek pouches helps clutch food in place so it doesn't fall out of the mouth.
