Now i know the recommended amount of turtle food is the size of it's head, but does this apply when two two year old boys start to consume my Mazuri pellets? If so i am going to have to start buying it in 50lb bags to kepp up.

My two boys broke the child safety latch letting them get into the tank stand. They consumed quite of bit of the food, and hurried up to chew and swallow what was in their mouths when i caught them.

It's not for children, it's for turtles!

Kidding. :lol:

I'm sure they'll be fine -- Skip feeding them tomorrow, I guess.
If a turtle had too much to eat, they pretty much spit it back out. That's what happened when I accidentally overfed Dumbork, she just vomited it out.
Of course, overfeeding (even accidental) can cause large seams on the shell.
FAREWELL DUMBORK
