Abstract Hamster. Die Nahrung wird zum Transport mit charakteristischen Pfotenbewegungen in die Backentaschen gestopft und in einer Vorratskammer innerhalb des Baus gelagert. Nistmaterial wird mit dem Maul gepackt und in die Wohnecke gebracht; es dient zum Auspolstern und als Kälteschutz während des Winterschlafs.
The film demonstrates the behaviour of the hamster Cricetus cricetus when carrying food and nestmaterial. Hamsters innately collect and store food. Food is stuffed into the check-pouches with characteristic movements of the paws and transported to the burrow. Then it is stored in special store rooms within the burrow. Nesting material is transported with the mouth to the sleeping corner; it serves for wadding the nest and as a protection against the cold during hibernation.
