Pine cones open up when you bring them inside

My fiancee has been collecting pine cones for room decorations, and one cool thing we discovered is that they open up after you bring them inside. I'm not sure if it's caused by the warmth or the dryness or something else.

A day or two after you bring them in, you'll see that they gradually splay open. Evidently they are doing this to expose the seeds inside.
