What are the advantages of animals eating excess food and putting on weight for winter?

1) They put on fat which is a good insulator and allows the animal to retain its heat.

2) The animal in putting on weight will become larger and have a smaller surface area to volume ratio which also decreases the rate of heat loss.

3) Fat is a source of energy.
