Why do chipmunks have big cheeks?
To store and consume large amounts of food at any one time.
You are probably referring to chipmunks. I don't think they actually have pouches in their cheeks (marsupials (kangaroos, wombats, etc) are the only pouched animals I know of), but Chipmunks certainly do use their cheeks to hold food.
