they are bottomless pits
keep feeding them and they will keep eating
just try to imagine how big their stomach is in their shells and feed accordingly

you should be glad they act like that..two signs i watch out for in res to see if they are healthy...(apart from any abnormalities) are whether they eat like pigs and bask...if they do both they are ok(though u\'ll probably find symptoms u need to watch out for on some site)...acting hungry is very normal..

You should see Timmi when I take a while to feed she tries to climb out of her tank!! She got half way out before I caught her one time. No one worry half way is about as far as she can get.

they always act like there hungry (mine at least) but only feed them the amount you were told to! I feed mine only what they can consume in 5 mins!
