    I was just thinking about this after reading the thread about the dog who ate the beans, and the other posts in that thread.

    So will an animal just continue to eat until death if given food they cannot turn away from?

    Depends on the animal. Cats: Most no.

    Dogs: Most yes.

    I saw some show on Animal Planet that showed some species of frog that will do just that. They'll even try to eat each other, and end up dying because they never let go, and they can't swallow it due to size.

    I don't really think there are any...

    It would not be a very good evolutionary trait to have.

    There are a lot of animals that will eat until they puke, though.

    Goldfish? They do warn you about overfeeding them.

    Many animals will eat until they die if the hypothalamus is removed, IIRC.
