He probably has about 20 more carrots in that pocket of his.

In animation, a Funny Animal character might be shown reaching into their pockets to pull out any number of things. But if said character is a pants-less Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal, or doesn't wear clothes at all, they might suddenly have pockets in their fur (or feathers, or scales) that they reach into. Humans or furless characters don't usually have this in animation, probably because it would be Nightmare Fuel for the viewer.

In Real Life, marsupials would have this (though only around the stomach, of course). In cartoons, however, both males and females will have them and keep things in them.
