i saw 1 of my res today eating his poop and i was wondering if that was normal or just hungry enough to eat his own poop?

It\'s rather common, and if the turtle is healthy, there should be no problem (but it\'s nice to get the poop out ASAP to keep the tank cleaner. And there are better things for him to be eating).

If you feed your turtle in a separate tank you might be able to cut down on the poop in the regular tank. No promisies though.

That is common, but I found mine stopped doing that when I kept romaine lettuce floating for him, or other greens.
