Photos Of Hamsters Shoving Impossibly Huge Stuff In Their Mouths

Hamsters seem to just love shoving impossibly large objects in theirs mouths.

According to PawNation, a hamster's cheek pouches are used to both store food and carry babies, and can hold up to half their body weight. The pouches are sensitive though, so if you own a hamster, be careful what food you provide to protect your pet from puncturing its skin.

Check out the photos below of some of the oversized objects hamsters have tried to cram down their mouths!
